If the complete excursion is to be undertaken an entrance fee (which includes car parking) is payable to do the 'Long Walk' and visit Mother Shipton's Cave for details of opening times and charges. Permission to visit Bunker's Hill Quarry (Locality 3) must be sought in advance. The starting point is Old Mother Shipton's [SE 345 571], off the A59, just south of the River Nidd. Alternatively this section west of the river may be omitted and one of the Council-run public car parks [SE 345 572] and [SE 348 567] used as a starting point. In this case Localities 1 and 2 are missed out and the section between High Bridge and Low Bridge on the east bank of the river is walked twice. Alternatively, a deviation can be made to the town and castle. The circular walk is fairly level, about 8 km long and passes numerous pubs, cafes, picnic places and public conveniences.
