The Yorkshire Dales is a famously beautiful part of northern England, but Nidderdale is perhaps the least known of its valleys. This unique dale has three large reservoirs formed by damming the River Nidd. It boasts impressive natural features such as Brimham Rocks, Guise Cliff and How Stean Gorge, and it’s rich in human heritage, from mining to textile mills. This 54-mile waymarked circuit starts and ends in the market town of Pateley Bridge, and can be walked comfortably over four to six days.
