The Dales Way Fundraising Walk May 2024

Join us on this classic walk from the Lake District through the beautiful Yorkshire Dales in Springtime.

This is one of the most attractive long-distance walks in the UK, passing through some of the most delightful river valleys of northern England. As long-distance walks go, this is one of the shortest (79 miles) and least strenuous. In general, it avoids the highest moors, hills and mountains, seeking instead the peaceful beauty of the valleys (‘the Dales’). The reward is not only some of the finest and picturesque views in England, but also the charm of the many villages we pass through, most with a long and fascinating history.
