An all terrain wheelchair route from Blencathra Field Centre
This is a stunning walk with wonderful views of the fells around.  The parking near the Field Centre has no facilities.  Skiddaw House is worth a visit for history, tea and flapjack :o)  

The track is generally good, but can get muddy and there are places where you will have to ford. 

Be advised, the ford north of Skiddaw House can be impassable after heavy rain. There is a lovely wheelchair accessible cafe in Threlkeld.  We did this journey in a TerrainHopper. 

Recommended only for robust all-terrain wheelchairs.

Debs’ Verdict: Love it!  Do it!  Now!
