This walk climbs to this geologically significant set of glacial erratic boulders in the Yorkshire Dales. The Norber erratics can be reached from the nearby village of Austwick. It's a short but quite challenging climb from the village to the rocks which are situated on the southern slopes of Ingleborough Mountain. The fascinating boulders were probably deposited by melting ice sheets at the end of the last ice age, around 12,000 years ago. The walk exposes you to some fine limestone scenery with wonderful views to be enjoyed from the high points. The boulders are dramtically placed with the far reaching dales scenery making a striking backdrop for any photographer.
This walk starts in Austwick and takes you north to the boulders on good footpaths. You could also start from the nearby village of Clapham. The walk can be extended by heading north to Thwaite Scars, Crummack Dale and Moughton Scars. Just to the north of Moughton Scars you can pick up the trail to Ingleborough Mountain at Sulber Nick.
After your exercise you can refresh yourself in the local pub in Austwick.
To further extend your walking in the area you can head west to Clapham where you can enjoy a stroll along Clapham Lake and Clapham Beck.
