THE Friends of the Settle-Carlisle line have organised series of guided walks for Saturday.

One is a seven-mile moderate walk from Gargrave to Malham, leaving Gargrave at 11.05am and returning by service bus from Malham.

Other choices are a nine-mile moderate circular walk in the Penyghent area, leaving Horton-in-Ribblesdale at 10.56am and a strenuous 14-mile walk departing from Kirkby Stephen at 10.34am and ending in Appleby.

Booking is not required, but it is essential to bring a packed lunch and plenty to drink and to be correctly equipped.
