Route Updates

Exit from Grassington

A diversion has been made by the Yorkshire Dales National Park where the Dales Way leaves Grassington and heads north. This is to avoid having to pass through the busy farmyard of Town Head Farm. The new route leaves Chapel Street before reaching the farm, turning right up the existing right of way up Bank Lane. This is followed round to the left and on until the right of way makes a sharp right turn. A new path has been constructed from here across fields in a westerly direction to rejoin the present route of the Dales Way well to the north of the farm. The present line of the route from the farm to this point has been closed. The National Park has clearly signed and waymarked this significant diversion.
