An absolute gem of a walk; simple, delightful, easy and surrounded by extravagant beauty. This rewarding circuit should take less than two hours, but could just so easily waylay you for much more than that. Link it in with a ride on the miniature railway from Ravenglass, and you can enjoy a full day amid the most superb scenery. From the parking area at Trough House Bridge, where the Esk skitters through a scenic mélange of trees, rocks and bubbling streams, turn left to follow a surfaced lane to a bend opposite Dalegarth Hall. Dalegarth Hall was built in 1599 (some say it dates from the 14th century), and boasts magnificent chimneys; it is the ancient manor house of Austhwaite, and home to the Stanley family.

Continue a short way further to a track junction (A), and here turn left through a gate and follow a descending track across an enclosed pasture. [Anyone wanting to visit Stanley Ghyll Force, a popular destination for adventurous Victorian travellers, would remain on the original track to view this dramatic fall in a deep and narrow gorge, and then return to the same point.]

Beyond the pasture, bear right to a footbridge spanning a tributary of the Esk, which is close by. On passing through another gate, keep right for a few strides, and then take a broad track that swings left across rough ground, with St Catherine's church putting in an appearance through the trees on your left.

When you arrive at a wall gap, go to the right and walk around a wall corner. The track wanders on through a delightful thin belt of woodland much favoured by great spotted woodpeckers. Keep on to pass a small tarn, surrounded by larch, and with a convenient bench on which to rest and reflect for a while.

Another footbridge spans a busy beck, after which the track runs on to Low Birker farm, with lovely views to the left of Scafell, Slight Side and the nearer shapely profiles of Great and Little Barrow. On reaching Low Birker (B), descend left to pass the buildings, and then walk along the access track to arrive at the single span of Doctor Bridge (C).

Cross the bridge and turn left on the other side, through a gate and along a path for St Catherine's church. You soon reach a riverside bench, which would be a perfect place for a picnic.
