Walk c126 Castlerigg and Threlkeld from Keswick

Fine valley walk to an ancient Stone Circle

In 2015, the Keswick to Threlkeld railway path was devastated by Storm Desmond, which washed away two major bridges & over 200 metres of track bed. Work is underway to repair the damage but some diversions are still in place.
