Buckden Pike sits at 702m (2,302 feet) high above the picturesque dales village of Buckden. The roman road that runs along Buckden Rake across the side of the hill once linked forts at Ilkley to the South and Bainbridge to the North. This was once a thriving lead mining area and old mining works and buildings are scattered below the summit.
We will start from the village of Kettlewell and ascend via the Top mere track to the edge of the moorland plateau. From here we cross the plateau to the summit of Buckden Pike where, if the weather is favourable, there are stunning views from the summit of Great Whernside, Pendle Hill, Fountains Fell, Pen-y-ghent, Whernside, Ingleborough, Wild Boar Fell, Great Shunner Fell and if we’re very lucky; the mountains of the Lake District.
