Byline: Bob Woodhouse

SOME 40 miles west of Marske-by-the-Sea's sweeping seaside sands, another Marske nestles among the moors and woodland of Swaledale.

Starting from the bridge at the southern end of the village we cross Marske Beck and head up the roadside steps towards St Edmund's Church.

We keep to the left of the church and pass through a squeeze stile beside the stone wall.

There are two more stiles before we reach the public road with Bumble Bee Cottage prominent as we turn left to walk ahead along a stony track.

Three waymarks on a trackside tree direct us alongside the wall on our left and at the end of the wall we bear diagonally left down the slope before walking ahead with Telfit Farm on the opposite bank.

Our route then cuts back to the left and we cross the bridge before passing through a metal gate to head up the slope.

An uphill section runs past a lane on our right with Skelton Cottage prominent on the right hand. We leave the track by passing through a squeeze stile on our left and cross the field to reach a fence on the left of a line of evergreens.
