HOMEPAGE Yorkshire Dales, North Pennines and parts of Cumbria Scenes38. Gargrave, East Marton

and the Leeds-Liverpool Canal

 

Scenes in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, North Yorkshire.

This page describes "Walk 18 East Marton" from the Walking Country Series of Guide Book MALHAMDALE

HOWEVER, the photograph sequence is anticlockwise because that's the way we did it!, BUT the book description of the walk is clockwise! Sorry about that Paul Hannon, but your books are great guides!

Another lovely little bridge to stroll under, the Williamson Bridge ?

 

What a lovely day for a canal walk as we head south towards East Marton.

 

The Double Arched Bridge, carrying the bust A59 over the canal just east of East Marton. The walk digresses into East Marton passing by the old medieval church of St Peter.

 

St Peter's Church, East Marton, with its short broad Norman tower.

 

Looking east down the nave to the chancel and the arches of the south aisle on the right, probably all of 19th century restoration or rebuild?

 

In St Peter's Church, East Marton is a the east stained glass window above the altar is in the style of David Evans.

 

The old medieval/Norman? font and another stained glass window in St Peter's Church, East Marton.

 

One may pause for refreshment in East Marton at THE CROSS KEYS traditional pub (left) or at the Abbots Harbour licensed cafe and restaurant (right).

 

The fine old SAWLEY HOUSE in East Marton for B&B and camping.

From East Marton you briefly walk back northwards along the canal and then follow the Pennine Way northeast all the way back to Gargrave, and indeed the car park itself, and a most pleasant ramble.

 

Just before Gargrave itself, you cross the Leeds-Carlisle railway line and Gargrave Station in the eastern distance.

 

Looking north down over the fields to Gargrave and the tower of the Parish Church of St Andrew.

 

The fine Perpendicular west tower of St Andrew's Church, Gargrave. The tower, with its three-light bell-openings, battlements and pinnacles, is the only medieval section left, most of the rest of the building is the work of Rhode Hawkins in 1852.

 

The porch, nave and south aisle of St Andrew's Church Gargrave, a fine red sandstone building.

 

Looking east down the nave to the rood screen and chancel beyond. On either side are the arches of the north and south aisles.

 

The east window and altar of St Andrew's Church, Gargrave.

 

Some of the fine stained glass windows in St Andrew's Church, Gargrave.

 

A nice 'family' stained glass window and the font in St Andrew's Church, Gargrave.

 

Opposite St Peter's Church is the Masons Arms on the corner of Marton road and ?

 

From the bridge in the centre of Gargrave, looking east along the banks of the River Aire as you approach the centre of Gargrave and the busy A59 to be crossed.

 

Several places in Gargrave for some final refreshment e.g. Left: The Dalesman Cafe Tearooms and 'Sweet Emporium' (tasty sweet shop!)

and Right: The White Cottage Tearoom, lovely freshly baked products like cakes and puddings - fruit pies, tarts and sponges!

 

Left: Gargrave Village Hall. ..
