Thursday 10 May - Canter Round Kendal

Cancelled due to rain. Meet in Brewery for drinks at 7.00 instead.

Start. Carpark bottom of Gillingate, next to Albert Hall opposite Cobbler John. Car park is free after 6. START 7pm!

This is a walk around Kendal that shows the town off to its best. Among its hidden secrets we will be animal spotting in Serpentine Woods, Crossing Hallgarths only bridge, walking through Prickly Fell (prickly by name, prickly by nature), wondering over some parks, detouring to Sedburgh Road Tarn and of course no visit to Kendal is complete without the Castle.

You will be surprised what little footpaths Kendal holds and how steep some of them actually are!

Walk is approx 2 hrs and we have numerous pubs or food stops to go to after.
