Brigantes Walking Group – Ripley

February 12, 2020

Storm Ciara caused a change of plan to the planned walk over the moors above Summerbridge and Low Laithe.

Instead four of us set off from Ripley to explore the lower reaches of the Nidderdale Way on a bright but blustery morning.

Heading out of Ripley we picked up Birthwaite Lane and ascended Scarah Moor before dropping in to Cayton Gill and up the moor again to a coffee stop at Kettle Spring.

Onwards the along the Nidderdale Way which followed Thornton Beck into Shaw Mills at which point we turned for home along Law Lane to Bedlam.

Then on towards the deer park and Sadler Carr, the site of a 13th/14th medieval fortified manor house called Dark Hall and finally skirting Ripley castle for a very welcome pot of tea and teacake in the cafe.

A great walk on one of the better days of the week.
