A one-way ticket through the Yorksh

A long, long walk through the Dales

One of the joys of car-free walking is making up your own routes.

The north end of the Nantlle Ridge

Once known as Snowdonia’s best kept secret, the Nantlle Ridge lies southwest of the Snowdon massif

These days, the narrow crests and rocky peaks attract their fair share of walkers and scramblers, but rarely suffer from the overcrowding that afflicts other parts of the National Park. If the views alone don’t take your breath away, then the sharp breezes that whip in from the Irish Sea will finish the job.
