Nought Moor Trail


Start from Showground Car Park Bewerley HARROGATE North Yorkshire HG3 5HW


Visit site

Set forth for a good healthy yomp across the heather, through some of Nidderdale’s ancient woodland and abandoned Victorian industry.  The Naught Moor Trail will take you through the village of Bewerley and up the valley side of Nidderdale though beautiful ancient woodland.  The path emerges from the woodland climb onto the moorland and offers a remarkable view of Pateley Bridge and Nidderdale.  A number of local landmarks can be visited with short detours from this walk including the manmade lake in Fishpond Wood and Yorke’s Folly; the two stone pillars that are visible on the skyline from much of the surrounding area.

The trail then reaches out across the moors to one of the old quarries that can be found all across Nidderdale, the last one closing in the 1930s.  As you cross the heather, moorland bird watchers can enjoy lapwing, skylarks, and buzzards and red kites overhead.

The return leg of the walk gently descends into the valley, through fields and woodland and offers a detour into Fishpond Wood before returning to Pateley Bridge.

Nearest Town: Pateley Bridge. Length: 4.5 miles (10.5km).   Time (approx): ~2 hours.   Difficulty: ​moderate with some significant hills.
