Walk: Barnacre, Helbeck Wood, Lower Cottage, Barnacre Moor, Grizedale Lea Reservoir, Oakenclough, Moor House, Burns Farm, Eidsford Lane, Church
Start Point: Barnacre Church Grid Reference: SD 513 460
Distance: 5 miles Ascent: 520 feet
Time: 5.25 hours    
Weather: Showery and cool. Blustery on Barnacre Moor. Day improved
Comments: Long steady uphill walk to Barnacre Moor. Superb views over Morecambe Bay. Short steep uphill out of Oakenclough but there is an alternative route along the road. New owners of Lower House are very welcoming to walkers and were very keen to show us their animals.
