|Start Point:||Arnside||Grid Reference:||SD 453 786|
|Distance:||13 miles||Ascent:||1,670 feet|
|Weather:||Very mild, cloudy day|
|Comments:||Six set off from Arnside following the
coast around Arnside Park before ascending up onto Arnside Knott
where we made our first stop of the day for our tea / coffee break.
Unfortunately, the splendid views that can be had from here, across
to the Lakes in the north and west to the Pennines, were not to be
had today due to the low lying cloud.
We dropped down from the Knott passing Arnside Tower on our way to the Pepper Pot at the summit of Castlebarrow. The Pepper Pot was built to commemorate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria and Arnside Tower was built around 1340 as a Pele Tower. Click on the link for more information on the tower.
