Cumbria County Council continue to improve the Dales Way with a new gate and footbridge.

Gate AA difficult, very old stile, especially in wet weather, for small children and those less agile than they used to be, has been replaced with a new gate. This is on the footpath between Burton House and the Oak Bank Road. Sad but necessary, I am afraid.
