This walk offers fantastic views of the fells behind Bleasdale, including Hazelhurst, Fairsnape and Parlick. Wooded Beacon Fell is prominent to the south. The rushy fields are ideal habitat for ground nesting waders like lapwing, curlew and snipe - and don't forget to keep an eye out for brown hare in springtime. At Brooks Farm, as you cross the road bridge, look out for the much smaller and older "packhorse" bridge on the right.
