Walk Details

The steep path from the Sticklebarn Pub follows Stickle Ghyll all the way up the valley side giving plenty of excuses to take a breather and wonder at the dramatic waterfalls and rock pools! Rest a  moment to take in the striking views across the valley towards Lingmoor.

On your way up you will cross the Hydro-electric scheme. The 100kW hydro-electric scheme on Stickle Ghyll supplies electricity to the National Trust’s Sticklebarn pub. The project is part of a wider goal to turn Sticklebarn into the UK’s most sustainable pub.

Sticklebarn is the best place in Langdale to relax after a day on the fells. It is a beautiful pub and the perfect resting spot after a long day of walking.
