about 20 minutes of steady walking, a bit more if you look at some of the points
This is a favourite walk for local people - up the fellside
through the woods by a beck, along the fell wall under Blencathra, with beautiful
views across to Clough Head, down and back through fields. It takes 40 minutes
of steady walking, more if you stop to admire the views.
This is an easy stroll, taking about 40 minutes, with long views down St John’s
in the Vale, Catbells and Derwentwater prominent in the west. It is mainly on
tracks through woods and fields, with sections on tarmac road.
