A long distance trail running through the Yorkshire Dales is being equipped with a series of new waymarking plaques designed by schoolchildren.
Those putting on their hiking boots or climbing into the saddles of mountain bikes
to take on the Dales Way will be guided for part of the route by the new signs, made by pupils at Holmfirth High School near Huddersfield, the national park authority has revealed.
New signs made by design and technology students will mark the route between where it enters the park at Addingham in the south before heading westwards from Lowgill towards the Lake District.
Interpretation officer for the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority Karen Griffiths said:
"They have come up with some excellent designs which our Area Rangers have now fixed onto new gates and stiles they have been putting up along the Dales Way within the national park."
Walkers or cyclists looking to enjoy the scenery of the Yorkshire Dales on a long distance path can also do so via the Pennine Way, which runs through the area between East Marston at the southern end and Keld near the northern boundary.
