Today’s walk took us to Reston Scar, which is just above Staveley village. It’s a beautiful 2 mile circular loop walk, taking in Black Crag and Reston Scar. With views out over Ings, Staveley and the mountains beyond. It finishes in Staveley village playground and / or the Eagle & Child pub!
Locals know this place most commonly as “Nannypie Lane”, although officially it’s called Wilson Place. This stretch of the River Kent is near Sedgwick, on the outskirts of Kendal and is a fantastic place to have a family walk and / or a picnic on a hot sunny day.
This is a gently undulating, but mostly flat, 3 mile circular walk along the River Kent, just outside of Kendal, up to Force Falls at the top and back down to Levens Hall in the south. If you don’t fancy a long walk, then just take a few hundred metres walk to the river shoreline and have a picnic and a paddle!
