The Eden Valley must be one of the most underrated walking areas in the North of England and this walk not only includes one of the finest riverside sections open to walkers, but also several sites of interest.
Lacy's Caves were cut from sandstone in a cliff overlooking the Eden; the tiny St Michael's Church is a delight and also has a bridleway running right through the churchyard; Long Meg and her Daughters is one of the best of the many Cumbrian stone circles and completely accessible.
You can even have tea before you go home, at a water mill just on the edge of Little Salkeld.
