The Wensleydale Way - 60-mile walk around Wensleydale

The Wensleydale Way is a new 60-mile walk around Wensleydale, starting and finishing in Leyburn. Leyburn has long been a destination for walkers and this new walk puts Leyburn on the long-distance walking map. The walk has been devised by Diana Jolland, whose series of 'Pub walks' and 'Just the Ticket' walking leaflets are sold widely throughout Wensleydale. Diana, chairman of Leyburn Walkers Are Welcome group, has spent many months researching the route and now the walk is published in a booklet to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Wensleydale Society, with profits being donated to the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. The booklet, wonderfully illustrated by local artist David Nash, provides a detailed guide to walkers in a series of eight routes starting in Leyburn and going to Redmire, Askrigg, Hardraw, Garsdale Station, Gayle, Bainbridge, West Burton and back to Leyburn. The booklet is currently out of print.

The Dales Haven

Leyburn Tourist Information website is provided by The Dales Haven Guest House, which also provides a walk-in inquiry service for visitors on a purely voluntary basis. The service has been provided for seven years with the help of volunteers with no public funding. A council-funded tourist centre closed in 2011 and the Dales Haven was asked by the district council if it would volunteer to provide a service.
