Pry House to Keld via Ravenseat and the C2C Path
A walk from the doorstep of the farmhouse.
Its sometimes nice to put your pack on your back, leave the car behind and let your feet do the walking. This walk from Pry House Farm follows the road to Ravenseat Farm and then picks up the Coast to Coast footpath to Keld. Varied and diverse, it has become one of my favourites.
Head west from Pry House Farm and turn right signposted Ravenseat. This is a quiet, single track road and easy walking.
Walk over the wooden footbridge. As you approach Ravenseat Cottage there is a fingerpost signposted Tan Hill and Keld.
Through the hinged gate and you are on the Coast to Coast footpath to Keld.
This next section of the walk is the most intriguing and the most exciting. The path is directly above the huge limestone scarr that rises above the river from Wainwath to the Old Smithy. What you see and what you experience depends on the season.

Pry House via Ravenseat and the path as described above is 4 1/2 miles. To return to Pry House by the road is 2 miles.

However it will give you an idea of the lie of the land and like most walks if you follow the tracks and stiles - you can't go far wrong. Enjoy!
