Summary: The Abbeys Amble is a circular walk of 104 miles which begins in the North Yorkshire City of Ripon. It links three Yorkshire abbeys - Fountains Abbey, Bolton Abbey and Jervaulx Abbey and three Yorkshire castles - Ripley Castle, Bolton Castle and Middleham Castle. Much of the walk is within the Yorkshire Dales National Park with Wharfedale and Wensleydale prominently featured. The walk also covers the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Beauty. The length of the walk is ideal for a week long hike with towns and villages well placed for accommodation opportunites.
