Magnificent Meadows: Flowers of Upper Swaledale

We're teaming up with Magnificent Meadows to celebrate National Meadows Day on 1 July. Join our guided walk - organised in association with Yoredale Natural History Society - from Keld to Muker, following the footpath through the famous flower-rich hay meadows that Swaledale is famous for. Yoredale's knowledgeable volunteer, Charles Helm, will explain the history of the meadows and help with flower identification. Return on foot to Keld or wait in Muker to catch the 1620 bus if you prefer. Please bring a packed lunch. Dogs welcome but should be kept on a lead at all times.
