Burnsall to Trollers Ghyll

Burnsall to Trollers Ghyll 6th September 2013

  This walk starts and finishes in Burnsall taking in the villages of Appletreewick and Skyreholme.  Legend has it that Trollers Ghyll is the home of trolls and the mythical monstrous black dog Barghest.  It is also the location of an old lead and later fluorspar mine which was last worked in the 1960s. Its a short, easy walk with the only difficult bit been the 300m or so walk up the ghyll over the boulders of the dry river bed.
