This is a pleasant walk along quiet lanes and easy footpaths, in an unspoilt area close to busy Bowness. The walk takes you through undulating countryside.

Not as glorious as the location would suggest, and only the first half of the walk is in countryside; the second part is uninspiring and takes place on or beside roads.

The first part of the walk is very dog-friendly with few, manageable styles and lovely open stretches. From point 25 onward there are lots of road stretches, some without pavement, some along a very busy road. Not particularly pleasant for humans, not pleasant at all for dogs.

At point 18, just after going right at the signposts, the path forks (not mentioned in current description)and you need to take a right. The left branch goes DOWN, not up, to a farm (presumably Hill House Farm mentioned in the description), which you don't need to worry about. In fact the reference to Hill House is misleading and could well be left out altogether.

A couple of minor comments from a colleague who walked 2336 last week. Generally a very enjoyable walk which was open and walkable all the way round. In Waymark 8's photo, the tree at the left is no longer there. At waymark 19, she felt it was worth reinforcing the message to go right, as the walkers in the picture are going left, and she assumed it must be a typo. At waymark 14, the telegraph pole in question was actually the second that could be interpreted as being on an outcrop / knoll. (Appropriate notes now added to the instructions. Many thanks Chris.)
