Buckden Pike from Kettlewell

2019-08-11 09:15:00 2019-08-11 16:30:00 Europe/London Buckden Pike from Kettlewell

We head out of Kettlewell along the valley bottom following the river past the village of Starbottom to Buckden. This is where we begin a gradual uphill climb along good tracks that are steep in a few places. Once we are on top of Buckden Pike we enjoy a nice walk on top with fantastic views on a clear day, to the war memorial. We then descend down to Starbottom and along the river to Kettlewell. There are pubs and tea shops for refreshments when we finish. In Kettlewell this weekend is also the annual Scarecrow festival, so if we start early we will be back be back look around Kettlewell after the walk.
