Skipton to Bradley

Skipton to Bradley 4th April 2014

This walk starts in Skipton from the top of Short Bank Road following the Old Roman Road that links a fort at Elsack to the settlement of Ilkley. Its a sharp climb to start with before levelling out with great views over Skipton and the dales beyond. The day that we decided to do the walk the cloud came down and we could not see a thing.
