• Dales Highway and Dales Way circular from Millthrop, Cumbria

    Distance: 11.5 miles

    Terrain: easy

    Leaving the small laybay at the bridge over the River Rawthey (in spate), the route takes the road into the hamlet of Millthrop opposite the town of Sedbergh. Turning left at a T -junction and then right at a further one, the road concludes up a small rise giving way onto the open fell at Side farm.

    Beyond this gat take the onward route rather than turning right. Negotiating streams and marsh to a point where the walker turns south east and rises to a wall stretching along Long Rigg. At a further gate the route onwards is obvious and drops down immediately before joining a green lane that becomes a tarmac road at Lunds.

    Now in the dip of beautiful Dentdale, follow the River Dee upstream. Once the main road at Barth Bridge has been crossed, by means of a delightful riverside walk, this leads to Church Bridge and here the road is regained once more, turning uphill to the village of Dent.
