Grassington audio trail

This audio trail will take you on a voyage of discovery through 10,000 years of history around Grassington. The walk takes you through farmland which is being carefully managed for its historic features and wildlife.

You will pass through Lea Green Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), which is a designated for its species rich limestone grassland flora and limestone pavement. The farmer is sensitively managing this field to allow the limestone-loving wild flowers and grasses to flower and set seed during the summer months.

Bastow Wood is also a SSSI managed to provide a fine balance between allowing natural regeneration of tree species to occur and maintaining the open grassland areas .

We always recommend that you bring an Ordnance Survey map if you are going for a walk in the National Park. Grassington is covered by Explorer OL2. You will need footwear suitable for rough, muddy ground and waterproofs are also a good idea depending on the weather. Find out more about what to take and how to be safe on a country walk by looking at our Taking care section.
