After departing from Keld, pass through Stonesdale Moor and onwards to Tan Hill, where you will find the infamous Tan Hill Inn (England’s highest pub),  a great place to stop for lunch if you can time it right. Then head off across Sleightholme Moor before reaching Trough Heads, where you have the option of  following the direct route to Baldersdale or the longer Bowes Loop via the small town of Bowes and its castle, a Norman keep dating from 1087.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
