Our walk this week takes us to Cumbria.
This linear walk is a short section of a walk taken from the long distance walk – A Pennine Journey, which was a walk completed by Alfred Wainwright in 1938, and revised by David and Heather Pitt.
This is where your Cornish walk will take you.
Nearest Station: Kirkby Stephen
Length: 2.41 miles
This section of the walk is all on good bridleway from The Thrang in Mallerstang, Cumbria to an iconic sculpture called ‘Water Cut’ by Mary Bourne. The route is suitable for a sturdy 4×4 all-terrain wheelchair such as the TerrainHopper. It is a gradual climb up to the Water Cut, but is good, fairly even track.
There are spectacular views of the Eden Valley en route. From the Water Cut there are fantastic views of Wild Boar Fell, Mallerstang Edge and the Mallerstang Valley below.
Heading out of the Nateby village on Nateby Road, there is informal parking after The Thrang on the left side. Follow the signs for PENNINE BRIDLEWAY up the Mallerstang valley. It is possible to go a little further past the Water Cut to Hell Gill Bridge. At this point you will need to turn around and retrace your steps.
