A 30-45 minute circular walk from The Swan Inn to play Pooh Sticks on the River Aire.
Wander past some historic sites in the village before heading out to maybe see Redshanks, Lapwing and Curlew on the floodplain of the River AIre. The gatekeeper for Skipton Castle used to live here - I wonder if there is a key anywhere?
Accessibility: this walk is on unmade footpaths including styles and narrow bridges. It is unsuitable for buggies or wheelchairs.
There are six buses a day from Skipton to Carleton. The number 12 route leaves from Skipton Bus Station and the train station. Check online for bus times. If you’re in a car there’s limited street parking in the village.
We hope you enjoyed your walk, we have many others available to download.
