A heavy branch has fallen across a stile on the Dales Way in Dentdale and is blocking the path.
The stile lies on the path between Tub Hole and Tommy Bridge (SD 4224 9708) where the Dales Way briefly crosses the River Dee on its way down the valley to Dent.
Although agile walkers can squeeze past, the branch is potentially dangerous and walkers are advised to avoid this section until the blockage has been removed. National Park rangers are working to fix this.
Dales Way walkers are advised to stick to the quiet road at Tub Hole and continue along this, passing Whernside Manor to rejoin the route at Bridge End, until further notice.
Thanks to Linda and Brian for letting us know about this.
UPDATE: This has now been fixed by the farmer. Many thanks to him!
