Just finished the Dalesway yesterday. What a great experience...apart from about a quarter of a mile around the site of the mill in Burneside when we saw more dog dirt per square metre than I've ever seen in my life. It was truely appalling and stomach churning.

You are so right.

I hope your posting won't put people off the walk, which I completed this morning. It has great sections.

I'd be interested in your views about the section from Crook Of Lune Bridge to Burneside. I found it "bitty" by comparison with the rest of the route, and route-finding through some of the fields felt tedious. Maybe I was just having a bad few hours - what did you think?

Pete,
Its straight forward when you've done it half a dozen times. However, yes its more broken up into shorter sections than most parts earlier on and then again for the last couple of miles. I quite enjoy those sections where you have to be on your toes, rather than long unrelenting tracks that go on for mile after mile.
Doing the lengh of Dentdale in the dark, makes it more interesting too.
Dave.

Dog muck is becoming the scourge of the countryside these days. Folks take their dogs out, when they need to perform, rather than let them do it in some unobtrusive spot, many now collect it up in small plastic bags and then throw it into hedges, streams etc. I am working all three days this BH and expect to collect up a rather large amount. Unpleasant!
