Farndale is justifiably noted for its show of daffodils in the springtime and this walk gives an excellent example why. The walk starts from a country lane just outside the tiny hamlet of Church Houses. It then passes the tea rooms of High Mill before travelling alongside the early stages of the River Dove with its marvellous show of daffodils in springtime. It then reaches a second tiny hamlet, Low Mill, with its handful of quaint cottages, a car park, post office and public toilets. From Low Mill the route backtracks for about a hundred yards before passing through fields and farmyards to join a country lane. It then passes St Mary's Church (not to be missed if the daffodils are in bloom) and through Church Houses and just beyond the pub, back to the start of the walk.

01.04.18 We did this walk as the first part of a longer route. Too early for the daffodils, but they should be lovely by next weekend if we get some warmer weather this week. We really struggled to park at Church Houses. There no longer appears to be the parking for a handful of cars, and the grass verges were narrow and very muddy. However, there is a large car park at Low Mill and starting the walk there may be a better option.

I agree that this walk works well starting at Church Houses, rather than as more traditionally at Low Mill. However, we did the high section (ie waymarks 11 - 5) first which gives great views down through Farndale, followed by the gentle stroll back up by the river. Jude Howat
