Kirkland to Blencarn via The Rigg - 3.55km

Walk towards the telephone box, over a small stone bridge, and turn left into the village and continue with the church and then Glebe Farm on your left, both on the other side of Kirkland Beck. 

Immediately after the cottage “Brooklands” is passed on your right, there is a road signposted “Public Way”.  Take this turn, and follow the road to Ranbeck Farm. 

Pass through the farm, with the farmhouse on your left, and then follow the road to the right which will lead to Whythwaite. 

After passing the front of Whythwaite on your left, go through a 7-bar metal gate, and then a wooden gate signposted ‘Public Way’ in the direction you’ve come from. 

After passing through this gate, bear right onto The Rigg.  The track across The Rigg is fairly obvious, but may be very boggy in places.  

On reaching the West end of The Rigg, exit through the metal gate and follow the road downhill.  The Village Hall is on your right after 100m.
