Section 2: Garsdale to Askrigg

Garsdale to Askrigg (12 miles / 19 km)

Today we enter Upper Wensleydale proper; initially through rough sheep pasture, following the Ure as best we can before dropping down to cross the main road in the valley and pick up a riverside path into Hawes, the highest market town in England. In the afternoon, we cross to the other side of the Ure and use hay meadows bright with flowers in the summer, quiet tracks and a disused railway line to make our way to Askrigg, famous for its James Herriot connections.
