Car Free Walks highlights Swaledale

Those without a car or simply keen to leave it at home have been reminded of the public transport on offer in the Swaledale area of the Yorkshire Dales.

Carfreewalks.org, which promotes walking without the use of personal transport to reach the start point, noted in its latest emailed newsletter to subscribers that the Dalesbus network is very useful for getting around the national park in winter.

Its information on Swaledale featured walks near the village of Keld, which includes a climb up Great Shunner Fell, a 2,349 ft peak that is also on the Pennine Way.

Those climbing the fell may easily add a second peak to their walk by crossing the Buttertubs Pass and ascending the 2,215 ft Lovely Seat, named after the stone chair that doubles as a cairn on the summit.

Visitors to the Yorkshire Dales can also access the area by rail via the Settle to Carlisle railway, with stops including Dent Station, the highest mainline halt in England.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801273743-ADNFCR
