International TV exposure for Dales walking route


Canadian adventure travel TV show – the Eagar Brothers – head across the hills in search of their favourite Yorkshire pint

Mark Reid’s long distance walking route – The Inn Way... to the Yorkshire Dales – charts a 6-day circular walk that covers 76 miles via 26 great country pubs.


Since it was first published back in 1997, many thousands of people have enjoyed walking The Inn Way... to the Yorkshire Dales, with its intoxicating blend of breathtaking landscapes, fascinating history, unique culture and heritage as well as its wealth of traditional pubs.

Now this walking route looks set to become even more popular after the Eagar Brothers filmed the route for their adventure travel television series Which Way To which is due to be screened on Canadian national television in the autumn as well as over 200 countries worldwide on National Geographic Channel.

The three Eagar Brother – Bass, Squids and Krusty – walked the route with Inn Way author Mark Reid in late February, and they loved the combination of remote moorland, cosy village pubs and amazing history. As for their favourite Yorkshire pint... all will be revealed in autumn!

Says Mark Reid, author of ‘The Inn Way’ guidebooks: “I always say that a walk is all about the journey, not the destination. Things always happen along the way that make for a memorable experience, and our ‘Inn Way’ walk was no exception.”

“The three Eagar Brothers lent their hand at rounding up sheep, bell-ringing and drinking a yard of ale. They had a medieval lunch with the owner of a castle, played quoits on the village green against a local team and hitched a ride on the back of a tractor. And in between all of this, walked across some of England’s most spectacular landscapes and called into some pretty special pubs. Their favourite pub was the Falcon at Arncliffe, where beer is still dispensed straight out of the barrel into a porcelain jug” added Mark.
