OS Explorer 297 - Lower Wharfedale & Washburn Valley
Starting Point and OS Grid reference: The Roundhouse, Burley-in-Wharfedale (SE166464).
Car Park is at rear of Queen's Hall
Introduction: This walk takes in a circuit through the outskirts of Menston and Guiseley and includes a lovely section to the rear of the High Royds development. En route there is the opportunity if desired for a lunch stop at the Ings pub. "Ings" is an old Norse word relating to marshes or water meadows or possibly from "Ing", an ancient Norse fertility god. In this location, the former seems more likely as there are a number of water courses which could have created water meadows and/or marsh.
