2018-02-25 10:30:00 2018-02-25 16:15:00 Europe/London Knaresborough-Plompton Hall-Ribston Hall

From Knaresborough we follow the River Nidd in a southerly direction for a short distance and then head towards Birkham Wood and Plompton Hall. From there we continue to Little Ribston and return to the Nidd for our lunch-break, looking across the river to Ribston Hall. We then follow part of the Knaresborough Round route to Goldsborough before looping back to the start.

There are plenty of refreshment options in Knaresborough town centre. We may stop there on the way back to the carpark.

Please note that we have to cross the busy A658 on two occasions on this walk. Please have your wits about you and take extra care when crossing the road.

If you have gaiters, we highly recommend that you wear them as this walk was very muddy in parts when we reccied it.

There are toilets at the meeting point. 

Meeting point:  York Place Long Stay Pay & Display Car Park in Knaresborough. Post code HG5 0AD. Cost in 2017 was £1.60 for 4+ hours. The entrance is on the main road, opposite the swimming pool, next to the Marquis of Granby pub. We will meet next to the ticket machine at 10.15, to start the walk at 10.30.

Take A Hike welcomes members of Get Your Boots On to join us for the day.
