Yorkshire is England's largest rural county covering 3,000 square miles. It
includes the Yorkshire Dales, the Howardian Hills and the North York Moors but I have
separated these out as separate areas in view of their National Park status.
Although the National Parks may contain the most impressive scenery, that
does not mean that the rest of the county is bereft of decent walking!
and the Washburn Valley for example contain some great walking with long
distance views and attractive reservoirs. The walk I have detailed to Lund
Tower and Cowling Pinacle only just outside West Yorkshire provides for a
dramatic ridge walk with long distance views of Pendle Hill and Pen-y-Ghent.
There are plenty of country pubs to add to the enjoyment!

looking for North Yorkshire walks to access by public transport, click on the
"ticket" symbol below. Although many of the walks have been accessed
by car and some of the starting points themselves might not be
close to reliable public transport, most walks are circular and some do pass
close by public transport at some point. The walks can be picked up at that
