Description: A lovely walk down narrow country lanes and across farmland. Enjoy either on foot or bike. Halfway point brings you to the quaint village of Linton where you can stop for a drink at the fountain pub and relax on the village green.

Directions: From Coxons Farm Glamping pods, head out to the B6265 and turn right. Follow the road to the bottom of the village until you reach 'Swinden Lane' and take a right down the lane. Follow the track which will lead you up behind Swinden Quarry.

Cross Eller Beck onto Moor Lane, which will lead you on a gradual descent around the NW side of the quarry.

Cross over the B6265 and follow the track through the trees until you emerge at the outskirts of Linton Village. (Call in at the Fountain Inn for a refreshment!) 

Cross over Linton Beck and head right, following the faint footpath through the fields until you reach Threapland. From here, continue on the road into Cracoe.
