Bainbridge to Redmire – 1 September 2018

We have been across to the Yorkshire Dales many times over the years and you would think that we would have been to about every location in the Dales or at least every location that has a pub where we could meet up at the finish of our walks. However, surprisingly there are some places that we have never been and Redmire just happens to be one of them. The village itself is located in Lower Wensleydale about four miles from Leyburn and just south of Castle Bolton.

Because some of the members leave for a week in Austria on the day of this walk we have decided to just have three walks on offer. The long walk of 13 miles starts at Downholme Bridge on the way out of Richmond on the A6108 road. This walk will be well underway before the 8-mile walk gets off at Worton and finally, the 9-mile walk gets off just outside Bainbridge.

The 13-mile route is going west through Marrick and then in a long looping route south across Harkerside Moor and then down through Castle Bolton to the finish at the Bolton Arms pub in Redmire. The 8-mile route heads along the River Ure in an easterly direction before heading north towards Carperby and the finish at Redmire. The 9-mile route is going to go northeast up towards Askrigg and then along the bridleway called Oxclose Road until it comes to Castel Bolton before heading south to Redmire.

The image for this post was taken in the Yorkshire Dales in June 2016 while we were headed towards Bainbridge from Wensley. This was across open access land way up on Ellerkin Scar which unfortunately is a little too far north for the routes this time around.

If you would like to join us for the first visit to this great little location with one of the most perfect pubs in the Yorkshire Dales you can find the walk descriptions here and the GPS routes here.
