Above: The cairn at Windgate Nick on the Rombalds Moor path from Silsden to Ilkley has a distinctive new waymarker. The yellow arrow on a green background indicates the Dales High Way, a relatively new 93-mile walk from Saltaire to Appleby-in-Westmorland, which has quickly become a big hit with long-distance walkers. There is a route guide by Tony and Chris Grogan, who inaugurated the walk. "A Dales High Way" is published by Skyware Ltd. and is available via the website www.daleshighway.org.uk. The cairn also has a marker for Bradford's Millennium Way, which follows the same moorland path to Ilkley.
