Tidewater Way
92 mile walk connecting the tidal water of the east and west

A route connecting the tidal waters of the west coast with those of the east, thus laying the claim to be a coast to coast walk. The Way follows the Rivers Lune and Wenning, crossing the Pennine Way National Trail near Malham, the Dales Way in Wharfedale and using parts of the Ebor Way. Part of the proceeds of sales are donated to Christian Aid. The walk officially finishes in Ulleskelf, but as there is no accommodation there, we have concluded our itineraries in nearby Bolton Percy.

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.
