This walk goes through some ruins and ends at a waterfall in the Yorkshire Dales. This starts in the village of Muker. The green valley is decorated with tiny fields and barns. You will start off on a small lane near the church. Veer right on Pennine Way and the path will then become steeper opening to the valley of Swinner Gill. Keep on the path making a right before the village of Keld. The track across the top of the falls will reach the ruins of Crackpot Hall - the remote farmhouse with an amazing view of the valley. You will head back down towards the river and through the rim of the valley back to Keld. Take the path heading uphill that leads back to Muker.
