Wheel friendly walk in Reeth
Swaledale is located in the north of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It has been said that it is one most wildest, remote dales; ideal for walking and enjoying peace and tranquillity. Reeth is known as the capital of Swaledale. It is a very pretty village, with a village green and plenty of places to eat and drink.
It is possible to park your car on the village green in Reeth. There are accessible toilets ( RADAR) on the north side of the green. The walk starts at Black Bull Pub. There is a small alleyway between the Black Bull and Kings Arms Pub. The alleyway soon becomes a tarmacked lane. Follow this round and then pick up signs for the Swing Bridge. The route alongside the river is rough ground and unsurfaced and reaches a gradient of 1:6
It is a lovely place to amble along and take time to look out for herons, oyster catchers and the greater spotted woodpecker.
