Summary: Lady Anne’s Way is a long distance path from Skipton Castle in North Yorkshire to Broughham Castle at Penrith in Cumbria which visits locations associated with Lady Anne Clifford. She was a powerful landowner with a vast estate including a number of castles, and this walk follows in her footsteps, re-tracing routes that she may well have used as she travelled between her homes. Making its way through the Yorkshire Dales and the Upper Eden Valley the walk is one of great beauty and historical interest. Lady Anne’s Way passes through some of the finest areas of the Yorkshire Dales including Wharfedale and Wensleydale and then continues on through the remote fells of Mallerstang to enter the historic county of Westmorland and the beauty of the underrated and much undiscovered Eden Valley.
