Free Walk – Summer Flowers in Upper WharfedaleBuckden YDNPA Car Park | Buckden | BD23 5JA
June 29 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
Dr. Anne Readshaw, a local botanist, will lead this lovely walk of 6-7 miles, and help you identify some of the flowers along the way. Leaving Buckden we’ll follow a delightful section of the Dales Way along the River Wharfe to Hubberholme. We’ll peek inside the church to see a rare, medieval rood screen and pews hand-made by the famous ‘Mousie Thomson’ of Kilburn. Passing through riverside hay meadows in the peak of their summer glory to reach Yockenthwaite, time permitting, to see the Bronze Age stone circle. Returning through the woods/limestone pastures to Cray with a gentle descent back to Buckden. Ascent approx 150m with some rough paths. Bring picnic lunch. Well behaved dogs on short leads welcome.
Free event, no need to book. Donations on the day welcome.
