This walk is in the heart of the Mallerstang Valley and on the trail of Lady Anne Clifford who owned the castles of Skipton, Pendragon, Appleby, Brough and Brougham. More info on Lady-Anne Clifford
The first part of the walk is up a well made track if you are with young children I advise you to reach the source of the Eden and return as the path is more tricky on the lower round trip. There is a large stone called the “The Water Cut” marking the source which stands looking down the valley to Krikby Stephen and beyond. If you venture further you will reach Helgill where legend has it that Dick Turpin lept over on his horse Black Bess to escape the law.
Below Helgill is Helgill force which is an impressive waterfall.
