A very pleasant circuit from Appleby, starting from the train station on the Settle to Carlisle line. Dufton is a pretty village at the base of the Pennines, where there is a pub for a halfway stop.

The route starts through fields and then goes into a mixed woodland. You emerge on the other side, cross a stream and follow a beautifully built dry-stone wall through more fields. A section through a steeply-sided wooded gorge leads to Dufton. The Stag at Dufton is a friendly place to stop, with good food. The return is over more fields and then a final section where you retrace your steps from the outward journey.

The route links well with the High Cup Nick walk (2539) or the shorter Dufton Pike circuit (44), allowing you to do these using public transport.
