Dales Way near Bolton Bridge

We can now report that following our correspondence with the Bolton Abbey estate, the estate has cleared a good pathway behind the mounds of earth and rubble at the side of the road just south of Bolton Bridge, as these photographs show. Dales Way walkers and other pedestrians can therefore keep safely away from road traffic. We are very pleased that the problem has been resolved before the Covid lockdown ends and the numbers of visitors increase.

We now look forward to the safety of pedestrians’ being further enhanced by the creation of a new permissive path through the roadside woodland to the north of the site, as agreed between the estate and the Dales Way Association. At present we do not know when this work will take place and we will keep you posted.
