There is quite a climb out of Settle up onto moorland, but it is lovely countryside, and you are rewarded with good views towards Ingleborough, one of the “Three Peaks” of Yorkshire. I saw larks, rabbits, curlews, lapwings and orchids. The route is absolutely gorgeous over here, and also on through Austwick and Clapham. From Clapham to Ingleton you can hear traffic noise from the A65, but it is fairly easy to shut out, as the countryside is still lovely. There are good refreshment opportunities at Feizor (Elaine’s Tea Rooms), Austwick (Game Cock pub), Clapham (several options), and on the A65 just west of Newby (Goat Gap Café). The villages along the route are all very pretty with lots of very old but well-maintained buildings.
I would have said this was a 5* route, but from Newby to Ingleton (the last quarter), the footpaths appear to be rarely used, and are often across the middle of fields of long grass. Careful navigation is needed. It is often difficult to spot the next stile along here, as they are all stone steps sticking out from stone walls and can be quite tricky. At OS Grid Ref: SD 71620 70372 there is a very short diversion, signposted on the west side only, but I followed the OS/Slow Way route exactly (from the east) through a discouraging wooden door and the corner of a garden, and didn’t see the sign until I emerged. Even so, it would have involved a difficult gate balanced on a small stone bridge (see photo). There is also a tiny diversion on the last footpath into Ingleton but it is very well signposted on the ground. Apart from these manageable issues, this was a lovely walk, with plenty of facilities at either end, as well as dotted along the route.
