Route Updates

Sprint Mill

Spring Mill alternativeThis route change was introduced to take a safer route on the approach to Burneside, avoiding an increasingly dangerous stretch of road at Sprint Bridge.

The original route passed Sprint Mill and continued along a wallside to the busy road at Sprint Bridge. The road is narrow and without any verge or footpath, and the fast moving traffic has made it quite dangerous. The route then turns down Hall Road, taking to a handy footpath over the wall.

The new official route crosses the bridge at Sprint Mill, between buildings, bearing right along a waymarked footpath through a pretty garden area. A stile leads into a field with a wall on the left, following this to a large metal gate. The way continues west, with the wall now on the right, through a couple of gates to pass Tenement Farm.

Continue out along the farm access road to join a quiet country lane, left, down to the busy road near a junction. A right and left bring you quickly onto Hall Road and the roadside path down towards Burneside.

This is now the official route for Dales Way walkers.
