A new book of walks from stations along the world-famous Settle to Carlisle railway line will help to preserve the beautiful Three Peaks of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Dales Rail Trails was funded by the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority’s (YDNPA) Sustainable Development Fund – which is managed by the Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust .
This is yet another excellent offer of support from a local business – and the Settle Carlisle line is the ideal way to access the area.

The YDNPA’s Three Peaks Project Manager Steve Hastie said: “This is yet another excellent offer of support from a local business – and the Settle Carlisle line is the ideal way to access the area.
“Sustainable tourism is at the heart of the publication, so I’m really happy with the link with the Friends of the Three Peaks.”
Chris Grogan said: “As Corporate members of the Friends of the Three Peaks, we were more than willing to allocate some of the proceeds to the vital work on the path network and we hope that it will benefit walkers for a long time to come.
Malcolm Petyt, the YDNPA’s Member Champion for Recreation Management, said: “This is a very generous donation that is very much appreciated.
“It’s good to see that more and more organisations and companies are joining the Friends of the Three Peaks and helping us to conserve and protect this very fragile environment for future generations.”
The book contains 32 walks from stations along the railway line as well as a guide to the popular, 24-mile Three Peaks Challenge route and details of the 48-mile Six Peaks Trail, which links stations from Settle to Kirkby Stephen.
