Apparently this is a 50 mile circular walk covering four stages The part that we walked started in Ripon and took in the scenic views of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Gardens. A pleasant ramble through part of Gods Own Country.

We started and finished in Sawley. It was a most pleasant and interesting walk. Well sign posted and mostly easy walking. We stayed at Mickley B&B which was great and finished off with a lovely meal at the Sawley Arms. Worth a go !
