Enjoy a walk along the pretty Bedale Beck on this easy walk in North Yorkshire. The beck includes a pretty harbour, a waterfall and tree lined footpaths. It's a nice place for a peaceful afternoon stroll. After visiting the beck you can stroll around the town and visit a unique 18th century Leech House, the 14th century Grade I listed market cross and numerous Georgian buildings. The town is also on the Wensleydale Heritage Railway which you can catch to Northallerton and Garsdale.
Bedale is located just a couple of miles north of Thorp Perrow Arboretum. The beautiful woods have a series of nice trails and a seplndid collection of rare trees and plants from China, Japan, North America, Chile, and Europe.
A little further on is the town of Masham where there are good footpaths along the River Ure and River Burn. You can also pick up the long distance Ripon Rowel here.
