Arkengarthdale is one of the less known dales. Langthwaite, the major village is found in the head of the dale, a quintessential village with a solitary pub, lovely church and a selection of houses, some in narrow terraces and some larger. This walk visits Langthwaite after a lofty walk along Fremington Edge which provides marvellous views of the sweeping dales and on a clear day the North York Moors far in the east. After Langthwaite Calver Hill is rounded to cross into Swaledale before a finale along the riverbank and back to Reeth.
