Walk 5: Netherwood House, Heber’s Ghyll and the Moor Edge

Start & Finish: Memorial Hall, Main Street, Addingham LS29 0LZ, SE 079 497
Full Route: Approx. 6 ½ m (10½ km)
Short route: 4 ¾ m (7½ km)
Height gain: 928ft (282m)
OS Maps: Explorer Sheet 297 or Landranger Sheet 104


Starting from Addingham, the walk climbs in a south-easterly direction up the Addingham Moorside meadows to the edge of Ilkley, crosses the bridges up over the tumbling waters of Heber’s Ghyll, continuing along the breezy edge of the moor for 1½ miles, and then straight back down to the village. A shorter option stays below the edge of the High Moor but still has fine views.

The going is moderate up the Moorside meadows, the climb steeper up Heber’s Ghyll, and then the uphill section along the moor edge is more gentle. The first part downhill is rocky through the millstone quarry, the downhill path through meadows much easier.
