Walk: Yealand Conyers, Yealand Redmayne & White Moss back via canal
Start Point: Tewitfield locks Grid Reference: SD 520 737
Distance: 5.1 miles Ascent: -
Time: 3 hours    
Weather: Overcast but fine
Comments: Despite the very bad weather forecast, 18 people enjoyed a dry, if very overcast, walk. Across the M6, west coast railway line & the A6 to the Yealand villages where we heard a little of the origin of their names. Along part of an old drovers road, used also by Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745, we saw evidence of the medieval field system whilst passing through 12 narrow squeeze stiles- a real Squeeze Stile Safari - to White Moss. Then back across the A6 to walk back along the canal.
