7. Westerdale (2) A walk up to the old industrial railway line and Esklets
Scenes around the Upper Esk Valley
North Yorkshire Upper Esk Valley Index
You can park near Waites House Farm from which there are clear paths or tracks up to the site of the old railway.
The start of the track which goes to High house Farm.
Looking across to Baysdale Moor.
The beautiful and most remote parts of upper Westerdale.
The odd tree struggles to survive.
I think the farm in the distance is Daleside Farm.
This stretch of path is part of the Esk Valley Walk.
Looking across to Esklets and the rock faces, mainly left from quarrying or ironstone mining?
Looking back down to Westerdale from near the old railway line.
The footpath crossroads on Farndale Moor.
The old track bed of the ironstone mineral railway which ran from the Rosedale ironstone mines to Bank Top above Battersby on Ingleby Greenhow Moor. Above - looking north-west, below - looking south-east.
From Waites House Farm you can walk in a more easterly route to walk above the rock faces above Esklets BUT there are virtually no clear tracks, but you return via the clear track pictured above.
Looking down on Waites House Farm from Westerdale Moor ?
Looking back down into Westerdale.
The last of the winter snow above Esklets.
The rock faces at Esklets.
From here you can work your way down onto the Esk Valley
Another dead tree!
