Bay to Bay Walks

Welcome to the website for the two long distance walks from Grassington in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales to Robin Hoods Bay in the East & Morecambe Bay in the West.


These walks have been established for over ten years and have a good following of walkers who have completed both of them. It is clear that if one of the walks is completed and the experience a good one then the second walk is an absolute must.


Even so both walks are quite different from each other. What they have in common is a steady day's walking, a lunch time pub or other source of food if that is possible, and a place to stay in the evening.


I notice that at the end of a good day's walk I am tired and ready for a shower, food and perhaps a pint of beer. Within an hour or two of arriving at the overnight stay, I feel restored and I am looking forward to another day of walking.


The books offer clear descriptions of the route - including 1:25000 scale maps, plenty of photographs and instructions from way point to way point which can be used with or without GPS.
