Walk Information

The North of England Way stretches 200 miles across the north of the country from Ravenglass on the Irish sea coast, to Scarborough on the North sea coast, through the different types of countryside offered by the three National Parks it traverses. Commencing in the peaceful Esk and Duddon valleys you are eased into a walk which takes you from the dramatic Lakeland hills, passing Lake Windermere, England’s largest lake, following the route of the Dales Way through Sedbergh, as far as the village of Dent, then over the fells of the Yorkshire Dales to Hawes in Wensleydale. Passing medieval abbeys, castles, and local breweries through well-known and not-so-well-known villages, the walk continues eastwards across the Plain of York via Ellingstring, Thirsk, Helmsley, and the picturesque village of Hutton-le-Hole, before crossing the Wolds and finishing in the seaside town of Scarborough.

This is a very agreeable alternative cross-country walk to the already well-known Wainwright route from St. Bees to Robin Hoods Bay, which tends to attract large numbers of walkers at certain times of the year, causing occasional difficulty in obtaining suitable accommodation, and requires a period of 14 days for the average walker to complete it.

Mobile Digital Mapping
Digital maps can be viewed on most modern smartphones using an appropriate app, downloaded from the app store associated with your device. Brigantes recommend that whichever app you use, it should support Ordnance Survey 1:25k or 1:50k scale maps. There are many apps to choose from, but the two main providers are Ordnance Survey and Memory Map.

Each provider’s app has its own benefits, but both provide all-important offline navigation, meaning your device does not need a mobile signal to work effectively on the trail.

  1. Lovely treck across the breadth of the country. Easier terrain than Wainwrights C2C. Lovely accommodation with great hosts booked by Brigantes. Our luggage was waiting for us every day. Annette was on hand to respond to any queries. Top Mark’s.
