Using different starting points give even more options. The walks are described below, with links to full route details in PDF format which can be downloaded and printed off on A4 paper.

See the Books page for details of the book and how to get it. Closure of Suspension Bridge — We can now confirm that the bridge is fully open again. Following comments from users, I have amended some of the walks. Updates are highlighted below. The amended route is shown below and will be in future revisions of the book. It has been suggested that the dog-friendliness of the walks would be helpful.
Not being a dog owner I cannot comment but please let me have any comments about problems walking with dogs as below. Please report errors, omissions, criticisms or even praise! The weather is currently a bit hot and sunny for some of the following walks at least for me! Those with a smartphone or tablet may find it useful to use it as an aid to navigation.
We use an app called Viewranger Viewranger. The free maps included based on the OpenStreetMap are actually quite good and show most though not all footpaths, but OS map tiles can be purchased. Maps can be used offline if purchased or downloaded in advance. If using your phone, ensure that it is fully charged at the start GPS uses more power than just the phone or, preferably, carry a power bank to re-charge in the field and carry a paper map as back-up.
Please follow The Countryside Code — in particular, leave no litter, leave gates as you found them and keep dogs on a lead when farm animals are around. Click countryside-code for a copy. Full walk: 4. Shorter walk: 4 miles 6.
OS Maps: Explorer or Landranger The route description includes an optional shorter link and an alternative start point near Bolton Bridge. You should carry appropriate outdoor clothing. The ground may be muddy in places so good footwear is essential.

Although the full walk is about nine miles and includes the climb up Beamsley Beacon, there are two shorter options detailed, and a number of other possibilities if using other starting points. However, the degree panorama from the top of the Beacon, and the dramatic ruins of Bolton Priory, make the effort well worthwhile.
Introduction: A gentle walk to Ilkley and back, good for hot day as it is mostly shaded and wooded, but nice anytime. Convenient for a diversion into Ilkley for shopping or refreshment but also passes the Riverside pub which has a takeaway food outlet. Ilkley would make an alternative start point. These are in addition to two bronze plaques which were erected in the s. Most of the plaques were also supported by the owners of the premises on which they are fixed.
This walk passes all the plaques and the following pages include more information than could be written on the plaques themselves.

It also passes many other places of interest in the village and includes two shorter options. The going is easy, mainly along roads but including some footpaths where suitable footwear is needed. A shorter option stays below the edge of the High Moor but still has fine views. The first part downhill is rocky through the millstone quarry, the downhill path through meadows much easier.
If you have difficulty finding it, return the way you came to the cairn and turn left on the main route. Full walk — 5 miles 8km , height gain ft m. With shortcut A — 4 miles 6.
With shortcut B — 3 miles 4. Ordnance Survey Maps — Explorer or Landranger Introduction The full walk is one of the more energetic in this book but the views over Addingham and up Wharfedale, and the sight of the millstone quarry, the Doubler Stones photograph below , and the many traditional farmhouses, make it well worth the effort. The going is fairly gently uphill across meadows until the Moorside Road is crossed, when it becomes steeper. These often flower-rich upland meadows and heather moorland are valuable habitats for wading birds and echo to the sound of lapwing and curlew from the spring onwards.
Please avoid disturbing ground nesting or foraging birds. Ilkley is set in beautiful Wharfedale and is close to the Yorkshire Dales.
