A large hole has appeared on the Dales Way just before Bridge End on the way to Dent. It was caused by a broken land drain and the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNPA) and the landowner are working together to fix it.

In the meantime Paul Wilkinson, the YDNPA Area Ranger responsible for Dentdale has put warning tape around the hole. Our thanks go to the walkers who reported this and to the YDNPA for their fast response.
UPDATE: Nov 2019 – the hole is now repaired. Many thanks to the local farmer.
