Walk Description

From The Golden Lion hotel, turn left down Duke Street, then left again down Chapel Street. Carry on and veer to the right up Victoria Street, then veer left up School Hill. At the junction, turn left (signposted Kirkby, Malham). Keep walking up this road, Albert Hill, until another junction of roads. Take the right fork here, following the sign for the Pennine Bridleway, along Mitchell Lane.

Follow this lane right to its end, leaving the town of Settle far behind. At the split in the lane, take the left fork and follow the dual walled track called Lambert Lane. This is also part of the Pennine Bridleway. A track leaves to the right, but continue to the left and follow this track all the way to reach High Hill Lane.

Turn right here, then the next obvious left, to be on Stockdale Lane – another dual walled track. The track bends to the left, then as it turns right, take the public footpath into the field on the left, then turn right and follow the clear path on the ground over Sugar Loaf Hill. Head to the boundary corner on the right, and follow this boundary for a short while, before the clear path on the ground veers to the left. Cross the wall using the stile, and turn right, to find a gate in the far wall. Once through, turn left, following the track which moves away from the wall to follow the bottom of Attermire Scar on the right.

Follow this path, past field boundaries on the left, and going past Victoria Cave, set high in the hill on the right. This path eventually turns left slightly to reach the Pennine Bridleway again. Turn left here, and follow the Pennine Bridleway all the way back into Settle.

Veer left onto the lane called Highway, and then right onto Constitution Hill. At the Market Place, turn left, then left again, and then right along Cheapside. Turn left at the main road, and you at back at The Golden Lion.
