Join us on this moderate 4-mile walk from Knott Lane to Great Asby Scar National Nature Reserve on tracks and across some pathless, uneven terrain. It will include the limestone pavements of Great Asby Scar, the quarries at Knott, and Gamelands Stone Circle, giving an insight into the geology, history and natural history of the area.

This wilk will be led by David Evans.

What to wear and what to bring

Check the weather forecast. Waterproofs if it looks like rain. Sun hat and sunscreen if it looks like sun. Sturdy footwear (walking boots or similar). The area is exposed so can be cold; come prepared and bring some warm layers. Please also bring water and any snacks you wish.

Dogs are permitted but must be kept under control and on a lead at all times.

More details about the walk will be sent via email when you book but if you have any questions in advance please email [email protected]
