Horton-In-Ribblesdale to Hull Pot

Hull Pot is accessed by a bridleway, which starts in the Yorkshire Dales village of Horton-in-Ribblesdale. Once you are off the main track the ground is very rough  which can prove to be rather boggy in places. For this reason I used the Terrain Hopper – a sturdy 4×4 all-terrain wheelchair. 

The reward for this trek is a feeling of being in the midst of splendid scenery with views towards Pen-y-Ghent and, of course, the magnificent Hull Pot, complete with waterfall in the wettest of weather.

The walk starts  on Horton Scar Lane. At the fork in the track, keep left! The track gets rough and uneven from here on. Continue up the bridleway until you meet the crossroad.

The track right leads up to Pen-y-Ghent, the track  straight forward, leads through the gate and onto Hull Pot.  It’s worth noting this is part of ‘A Pennine Journey’, Alfred Wainwright’s 1938 odyssey!

Having enjoyed the views around Hull Pot, follow your track back into Horton- in – Ribblesdale.

There is a pay and display carpark in Horton, The  disabled loo is located here too. (Radar Key).

Other things in the area to enjoy is the Watershed Mill in Settle, which is wheelchair friendly.

Don’t miss seeing the Ribblehead Viaduct too.

Enjoy a ride on the famous Settle/Carlise Railway – the trains are wheelchair accessible!

We stayed at King William Fourth Guest House, which has an adapted bedroom with en-suite wetroom.
