Skelton History Group Walk – Falling Foss & Littlebeck

Geotag Icon Show on map

Thursday 9th May – (20) Falling Foss & Littlebeck

Distance: 2½ miles; Ascent 620ft; Duration: 2½-3 hours

We meet at 10:30am at the Falling Foss car park near Midge Hall tea rooms. This short walk takes us down through the valley to the village of Littlebeck, where we turn about and retrace our steps. Unfortunately, the topography means that the route is downhill out and uphill back. If you need something to keep you going on the return leg, just keep those cream cakes at Midge Hall Tea Rooms in mind! This is a pleasant walk even without any heritage input, but this valley holds a hidden secret: it was the site of an alum works.

A charge of £2 per person will be made on each walk to offset the costs of Insurance. Please wear appropriate footwear and have clothing suitable for the likely weather conditions on that day. On the longer walks, it is suggested that you bring food and drink as we usually stop between midday and 1:00pm for a lunch break.
