Masham to Ripon 19th September 2014 (Abbey Amble Day 9)
We started our day by leaving your car in Ripon and catching the vintage bus that runs between Ripon and Hawes once a week. This walk is another easy section if not a little longer at a distance of 19.5km (12 miles) which should take just over 5hrs. Again we follow the River Ure towards West Tanfield through the woods at Hack Fall which is worth a visit as a day out in its own right. At West Tanfield you leave the River Ure behind and head towards Ripon across arable farmland.
The Abbey Amble walk has it all from the arable land around Ripon and Masham to the rugged grassland of the high fells of the dales with plenty of history thrown in for good measure.
