|Distance:||10 miles||Ascent:||1,200 ft|
|Weather:||A sunny day, mainly warm but a cool breeze at times|
|Comments:||From the small quarry car park the path led up the limestone terraces to the beacon. A clear path headed from the beacon and trig point through Strickland Wood and down to Occupation Road. After passing Leighton Hall Holme Farm we crossed Leighton Moss and the railway line at Red bridge where we spotted an unusual garden feature - a blue beetle (car). The nature trail at Haweswater provided a good spot for lunch then we walked through Yealand Hall Allotment and on to Cringlebarrow Wood. Just before leaving the wood we spotted a lime kiln that was worth exploring. It was then a short walk through Warton and back to the car.|
