Details

Stage 2, starts in Barnsley and finishes at the Cow & Calf summit in Ilkley. Also visiting Hooton Roberts, Conisbrough, Denaby, Mexborough, Adwick upon Dearne, Harlington, Barnburgh and Hickleton.

Renowned for its fresh air, moorland and stunning landscape, situated in the Wharfe Valley, is the former spa town of Ilkley.

The famous Ilkley Moor and the Cow and Calf Rocks overlook the town and inspired the well-known Yorkshire anthem “On Ilkley Moor baht ‘at”. The song was written in classic Yorkshire dialect and translates to “On Ilkley Moor without a hat”.

One of Ilkley’s greatest attractions is walking. The moor is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to its attractive north facing landscape, significant nature conservation and historical importance, making it the ideal spot to admire the panoramic views on offer.
