Join us on an 8.3 mile (12.5 km) walk with stunning views, a river-side walk, and fascinating buildings. Interesting buildings include Castlehaw Tower Motte and Bailey and the second oldest Friends Meeting House in England. George Fox visited Brigflatts in 1652 and preached on a nearby fell, a place now called Fox’s Pulpit. The Brigflatts Meeting House was built in 1675, by and for the people who would use it. At the Akay Estate, we find out how a local family dealt with tuberculosis. On our return we will pass a 700-year-old oak in the grounds of Sedbergh School.
