The walk goes to the south of Sedbergh on an old bridleway which is well-signposted and firm underfoot. The return is first along the quietest of lanes accompanied by the River Dee, going past an old mill and a tiny chapel. The Dee is crossed and then the Rawthey is followed before it too, is crossed and a return made through the grounds of Sedbergh Public School. The walk goes high enough in a few places to allow views of the town with Winder behind it, but there is no real climbing. As most hikers keep to the Howgills, this is likely to be a very quiet walk.

Only about 8 kms according to my GPS but an absolutely fantastic walk - especially after all the rain we've had. Dent Foot Methodist Chapel must be the smallest in the world !
