Silverdale Ramble

Having been out on the road bike first thing and battled the start of storm Imogen, I felt we should aim for somewhere sheltered for our walk today. So we drove the short distance to Leighton Moss and parked amidst lots of twitchers.

Through the musical gate in "The Trough" we went.

This permissive path brings you into Trowbarrow Quarry, now a nature reserve.
Rather topically since his recent demise many of the climbs on the main face are named after David Bowie tracks!

Passing through Red Bridge we arrived at Haweswater, a grand spot for a bite to eat. To wild today tho

The sun even came out for while, we'd almost forgotten what it looked like. 

Skirting the Western shore of Haweswater, we then entered Eaves Wood. 

A stroll along "The Row" before crossing Silverdale Golf Course...needless to say being good law abiding citizens no loitering was carried out!

This appealing old sign is on Silverdale Rail station, I really like it.
An enjoyable afternoon, a bit wild but all good.


  1. thanks for the post, the trough to hawes water looks an interesting walk and near a railway station :-)
