||Deepdale Wood, Cringlebarrow Wood, Storr’s Farm,
Hyning Home Farm, Hyning Scout Wood and Yealand Conyers
||The New Inn
||SD 504 748
||White cloud and mild for
March. Dry underfoot.
||Yealand Conyers is to the north of
Carnforth. The name of Yealand is thought to be derived from an
Anglo Saxon word for high ground. (See
The walk departed from the New Inn which was built circa 1680.
Thirty six persons took part in the walk which started with a short
climb to Deepdale Wood before passing through Cringlebarrow Wood.
The woods still had an autumn look about them, but new spring
greenery was beginning to show. The path then descended to lower and
more level ground and passed over dry fields and green lanes. The
route then rose to the higher ground of Hyning Scout Wood to avoid a
busy lane. The latter part of the walk was through the village of
Yealand Conyers allowing one to freewheel down to the New Inn.
