From Giggleswick Church go left, and along Bankwell road 200 yards, to narrow opening to path on left.
As the path opens up, bear left toward the bridge that crosses the river Ribble by Queen’s Rock.
Cross the river and head for the centre of Settle via Kingsmill lane onto Kirkgate, continue on Kirkgate which brings you out in the centre of Settle.
Cross the road at the pelican crossing and then straight ahead keeping the Town Hall on the left, at the end of the street right onto High Street past Talbot Arms pub, then onto Victoria Street and past the Folly Museum on your left.
Continue up Albert Hill, which bring you onto High Hill Lane 200 yards on, continue on for 0.8 of mile and then turn left onto a track, Stockdale Lane and gradually, you have good views.
Look over the wall on the left to see where there was once believed to be a Roman encampment.
Continue walking along the bridleway between limestone and millstone scenery, past Stockdale farm, going east on footpath until you reach Malham Cove road, now very much in limestone country and gradually, with good views down Malhamdale.
Pause to look at the Cove. You may hear or see peregrine falcons. Curlews and skylarks very much in evidence in the high parts of the route in spring- early summer. Go right, to head down into Malham = 7 miles from Giggleswick.
Lots to see in and around Malham – the Yorkshire Dales National Park Centre, limestone platform above Malham Cove, Gordale Scar, Kirkby Malham Church. Use paths by the River Aire for the last two. OVERNIGHT STAY
