Mixed woods, the much loved Slaters Bridge, the amazing Cathedral Quarry and open aspect and great views across the High Tilberthwaite Pass make this a very fulfilling walk. You don’t have to take the alternative through the quarry tunnels; the walk is glorious with or without this section. Indeed the tunnels are scrambly, dark, wet and full of potential danger – children love them – but have a care. (1.9mb) 11 pages.
TIME: 2 hours
DIFFICULTY: Easy walking with a little ascent (some 265m) and descent.
If the tunnel option is taken it’s a little scrambly and adds a further dimension
