Walk this route

I'd walked the path from Timble Ings across Askwith Moor before and knew it was straightforward to follow (not the case for all paths on that moor!) Soon the view down to Ilkley opens up and you can see a good swathe of Wharfedale as you start to descend to Denton. I don't think the route should be altered as this is such a delightful addition to it, but in the case of the crossing not being possible, one needs to follow Denton Road east and cross at the footbridge nearer Olicanians CC....

Searching for the path highlighted that there are overgrown drainage ditches and holes in the area that could lead to injuries if not negotiated very carefully. Re-routing to use the dales way link in this section provided a safer and enjoyable alternative....

There's some walking down quiet lanes, but that was welcome after lots of walking on uneven ground earlier in our day....

It climbs through the formal gardens then through a grassy area then bears right at the signpost on to the good quality gravel path signposted to Harlow Carr Gardens. From here the path descends to meet the road near Harlow Carr Gardens. The path goes along the boundary of the gardens at the bottom of the road entering a lovely wooded area with sulphurous stream down on the right. Shortly before reaching the road at Pot Bank the definitive right of way passes through two gates and through the garden of a house but they have posted a short diversion round their property to the left which most people use. The diverted path emerges on the road at Pot Bank. There is a short length of road to walk along before taking the not very obvious path marked by a yellow post on the first bend. The path curves slowly to the right and becomes more obvious because it is extensively used by cattle. From here the path passes through Prospect Farm where an amusing notice warns you that there are loose dogs, but not to run away from them....

The replaced section is much more pleasant than the equivalent section of SUNHAR1 but the disadvantage is that there is a relatively long bit of pavement walking between Beckwithshaw and Harlow Hill. Photos are in the route description section....

A very accessible route with a limited number of sections with narrow or poor surface route. There are many field crossings and stiles with a chance of livestock in fields. A very enjoyable route with the Sun Inn at the end....

There was a temporary diversion off the road from 1.0km to 1.4km of the slow ways route starting at the Sun Inn. This is possibly a short extension but an improvement as it route via the Fewston water side path. Four starts only because it is not as accessible for buggies or wheelchairs....
