Just North of Skipton, Embsay Moor is a pocket-sized reservoir with big character. The walk starts from our free car park and is only 1 mile long and features one stile and a narrow bridge. For those wanting a longer walk, bring a map and head up into the surrounding hills for breath-taking views.
If you don’t fancy a picnic, Skipton is just 3 miles South of Embsay and features lots of pubs, cafes and even the odd farmers’ market.
