Frosty Fields at Castle Sowerby


Ten group members set off from Lamonby on a frosty dry morning.

Initially the route was on the road through the village before turning off on a farm track and field paths to Parish Church of St Kentigern Sowerby. The route then continued across field paths and road to pass through the garden at Hewer Hill Farm. The morning coffee break was near the disused quarries at Castle How. The walk then followed the river Caldew to the road bridge near Millhouse.

Leaving the road the route followed farm tracks and field paths to join the road at Lonning Head and then leaving the road before the road bridge at Scalerigg House. Leaving the road at Scalerigg House the route used field tracks to Hutton Roof where we rejoined the road briefly before using field paths to Scales Farm where we rejoined the road for the last section passing the edges of Greystoke Forest and Thanet Wall Holiday Park before returning to Lamonby.

Total Walk Distance of 15 miles.
