Bolton Abbey

Sunday 28th April 2013.

Today the club visited Bolton Abbey.

David Lewis led the ‘A’ party on a circular walk. It was initially on moorland then climbing to reach the high point of Simon’s Seat. The return was alongside the River Wharfe.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Ken Morley led the ‘B’ walk. The walk started across sheep pastures before emerging onto Barden Moor. A permissive path led round Lower Barden Reservoir before we dropped down to Barden Tower. The route took us over the River Wharfe at Barden Bridge before returning along the riverside path past the Strid.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

The ‘C’ walk was led by Mike Duffy.The walk started at the Priory and after crossing the Wharfe it followed the winding trail through Strid Wood to re-join the river at the point where it plunges through the narrow gorge at the Strid. The return was along the opposite bank of the river with plenty of time to enjoy a cup of tea at the Pavilion Cafe before returning to the Priory.

I did the ‘B’ walk with Ken. To read a report of the walk and to see more photos go to
