Walk Details

In 1938 Alfred Wainwright completed a long distance walk called A Pennine Journey. It was a walk that was later revised by David and Heather Pitt. Our walk today takes you along just a short part of it.

We’re walking today along some good bridleway, making it wheelchair accessible. It’s a gradual climb up – but it is a good and fairly even track.

You’ll want to go slowly on this walk and take time to admire the views out across the Eden Valley. From the Water Cut you’ll get amazing views (on a clear day) of Wild Boar Fell, Mallerstang Edge and the Mallerstang Valley below.

From the top of the walk, you can either retrace your steps back to your car or consult your map to get you to your next destination.

Parking: as you head out of Nateby Village, on Nateby Road, there is some informal parking after The Thrang on the lefthand side.

Access TOG Verdict:
This is a lovely walk with spectacular views. Whilst it is a good track that you’re following – you’ll want a good, sturdy all terrain 4×4 wheelchair for ease and comfort!
