Walk - Gosforth and the Bleng

This gentle walk takes us from Gosforth onto the flanks of Bleng Fell, one of the gentle grassy fells that line the lower reaches of the rivers Bleng and Calder, then visits the edge of Blengdale Forest before ending with a walk through the villages of Wellington and Gosforth.

Castle Crag

This is one of the classic shorter walks in the Lake District, visiting Castle Crag, a minor peak, but in a fantastic location at the mouth of Borrowdale, and with views deep into the valley and along Derwent Water towards Keswick.
St. Cuthbert's Church, Kildale, is a 19th century church reached via a footbridge over a railway line, and with a notable porch
All Saints' Church, Ingleby Arncliffe, was built in 1821 close to the site of an earlier church, and is a typical early nineteenth century Gothic church. The old church was located to the south-east of the current building, and was demolished at the same date.
