(a) Dent to Gawthrop circular walk
Illustrate Walk 7 "Dent and Gawthorp" in Jack Keighley's "Walks in Dales Country - Thirty Scenic Walks"
The lovely village of Dent in Dentdale. A gem in a gem and the moon shining down too!
After climbing up out of the Dent village you walk through several fields with their typical 'Dales barn'.
On the 'Ocky' the ancient walled green lane above and south of Dent village. The phrase 'Occupational Road' to give the 'Ocky' its full name refers to the time when the moorland was 'reclaimed or 'occupied' for the first time.
Near, and below, Combe Scar looking across to the Howgills in the distance.
A wide view of Dentdale - beautiful small healthy fields surrounded by gentle rolling hills.
The lovely old stone house at Tofts.
Such beautiful and peaceful scenes are great for rambling through.
(b) Green Lane circular walk from Dent Village
There is a nice circular walk from Dent village to the south-east including the section marked on the OS map as the 'Green Lane' illustrated by a few pictures below.
