Starting at the wonderful Skipton Castle where Lady Anne Clifford was born, this walk passes through some of Britain’s stunning scenery on its 100 mile journey to Broughham Castle in Penrith where she passed way.
In 1605 Lady Anne Clifford lost the inheritance of her father’s estate to her uncle and male heirs. In 1643 she finally came into her inheritance and returned to restore her estate and the route was inspired by Lady Anne who repeatedly travelled between her castles and many homes.
The Lady Anne Way passes through the beautiful Yorkshire Dales including the villages of Wharfedale & Wensleydale. The Way continues onto the remote and rugged fellside of Mallerstang to reach Cumbria and the delights of the Eden Valley.
