Walk: Guys Farm, Street Bridge, Salisbury Farm, Sykes Farn and Clifton's
Start Point: Scorton Picnic Site Grid Reference: SD 504 504
Distance: 4.9 miles Ascent: 480 feet
Time: 3 hours
Weather: Sunny
Comments: From the Scorton Picnic Site the group of thirty crossed the River Wyre and then followed the “Wyre Way” over the M6 Motorway to pass through the fishery of Wyre Lake to reach Street Bridge.  Then, following footpaths through various farms in Nether Wyersdale, the group returned to the picnic site.  Many of the group then returned to Priory Café in Scorton Village for a pre ordered lunch.  An enjoyable walk with quick service at the café.
