This is a great walk with fantastic views. You can make it as hard or as easy as you like there are many different ways to go. It’s a very strange site seeing the rocks balanced on the hillside. Get up there take a picnic...More

The Norber Erratics must be seen to be believed, huge rocks on top of smaller ones as a result of glacial action. Worth the climb to see them.

Amazing small area of individual limestone rocks near Austwick, Settle. Well worth a detour for a short walk in the hills.
