Lambs are appearing further down the dale and the oyster catchers have arrived. It is great to see so many walkers in the area, attracted by the dry weather, beautiful scenery and, of course, the village teashops. The Yorkshire Dales National Park has introduced an app with 35 walks in the area, so I have decided to challenge myself by doing them in alphabetical order. So far, I have enjoyed routes starting at Apersett and Aysgarth. The walks range from a half a mile stroll to a good eight-miler, so they can be attempted by all ages. As soon as I have picked up my new boots from Alt-berg in Richmond, I will be off to Bainbridge which is next on the list, followed by several walks starting from Buckden. I will be posting pictures on Instagram @susanparryauthor.
