Wednesday, 11 November 2020 - Judi & Ian Leading - FARNDALE BRANSDALE Wednesday 11th November 10.00am -

Rudland Ridge Circular Walk. Farndale/Bransdale. Wednesday 11th November.


10.1 miles. Average difficulty with 900 feet climb in and out the valley. A mixture of moorland, wooded and farmland paths.

The ridge is very exposed and the walk maybe cancelled if the weather is poor.

The walk starts from the car park near Ousegill Bridge, Bransdale. Grid ref SE636946. There is a gentle climb northwards across Shaw Ridge. After 1.8miles the track turns southwards to follow Rudland Ridge until the path dives down into the valley 4 miles later. The path winds acrossfarmland to Pennyholme before turning north again through a steep sided wooded valley. Ankness Ridge is then climbed and followed before arriving back at the car park. The walk can be seen on the Visorando website.

The walk will only take place if local Covid restrictions allow. We will be a group of maximum 10 people.

The car park is best approached through Gillamoor or Fadamoor, the road is narrow. Google maps suggest that from Sherburn it is 50miles and takes 1hr 11 mins.

Meet in the car park for a 10am start

Please contact us on 07711526561 if you’d like to join us.

Best Wishes Ian and Judi

This walk has a steady long climb up, and on a clear day should have great views.
