Caldbeck was once a thriving industrial town with woollen mills, bobbin mills and a brewery all powered by the river which runs through the town. Today it is a friendly and proud village largely untouched by tourism.

There is a choice today between a high level walk or a low level route today. The low level walk is a little longer, but a much easier option. Either taking the route over the fell tops or skirting round the bottom, you are assured a great days walking.

Please note the GPX tracks follow the lower and easier route. Please see your guidebook for more information and follow your map if you choose the high route.
