Railway Walk

It's hard to imagine that this peaceful valley once had a railway, built to transport workers from their temporary homes at 'Dawson City' up to the reservoirs at Gorple, Widdop and Walshaw Dean.


Spring is a great time to explore the woods.

Make the most of the warmer days and lighter evenings and enjoy some time outdoors. The woods are bursting into life, so it's a great time to come and explore.
