Lady Anne's Way - Northern Section

Lady Anne's Way - Northern Section

This is one of the classic long distance walks passing through some of Britain's most stunning scenery on its 100 mile journey from Skipton to Penrith.
Starting at the magnificent Skipton Castle, the Way passes through the beautiful and popular Yorkshire Dales on its way into Cumbria and the hidden delights of the Upper Eden Valley.

The route was inspired by Lady Anne Clifford, that indomitable lady who owned vast estates in the old county of Westmorland during the seventeenth century. Lady Anne travelled repeatedly between her castles and the route takes in these once magnificent buildings, many now sadly in ruins.
