Kirkland to Blencarn via the road - 1.85km

Walk towards the telephone box, over a small stone bridge, and turn right, signposted Blencarn 1 mile.  Follow this lane for the mile back to Blencarn.  As you leave the hamlet of Kirkland behind you, there is a fine view with Blencarn lake in the foreground, the Eden Valley and the Lake District fells.  The lane drops down, past the entrance to the lake and through a small wooded area, along Blencarn beck, over a small stone bridge and uphill into the centre of Blencarn village, and on the left, the village hall.
