Dales Way DVD
Updated March 2016
Brought up to date on March 16th when all the
damage done to the Dales Way footpath by the
December floods had been noted, the diversions
decided then way marked. This adds over 50 images, 6
minutes and 3 new sound tracks to the updated DVD,
“A taste of the Dales Way.”
The DVD now has 565 images, lasts 50 minutes and
has 17 soundtracks to suit all tastes.
If you are about to walk the Dales Way, this DVD
will show you what to expect on your journey. If you
have already walked it, it will help you recall
those special moments.
My first slide show, for the committee, was made
in 2006, lasted 16 minutes and petered out on Cam
Fell when I ran out of photos. So I called it Part
1! Since then, the footpath has been covered each
year and images added, and whilst it was never
intended to be a historical document, some parts of
the footpath portrayed now no longer exist.
Crosdale Beck is no longer a ford, it now has a
bridge. The forest at Little Town has gone and been
replanted. Cam Forest has also suffered a similar
fate. The ancient Cam High Road with the iconic
Ribblehead Viaduct in the distance can no longer be
replicated. You now have the wagon road, and the
bridge which displaced the footbridge over Gayle
Beck. Matt Monroe will accompany you along the
“Watershed Alternative” over Great Knoutberry down
to Lea Yeat.
So, at no extra charge, get yourself a bit of
history, all for less than the price of a glass of
wine in a posh pub.
The DVD will play on your DVD payer/TV as normal.
The DVD may play on your PC but may not play the
soundtrack, depending on your settings.
