Fountains Abbey avoiding deer park (31 miles)
Greenway, Ripley, Pateley Bridge road – take 1st right to Bishop Thornton, past Markington X roads, take next right to Watergate and follow road round to Fountains Abbey. Take road signed to Aldfield and meet main Pateley / Ripon Road. Turn right & return via Ripon, Burton Leonard, Knaresborough.
NB This route is almost identical to (the preferable) Route 23 but provides an alternative in the rare event that the deer park is closed.
