Helsington Barrows and Helsington Laithes. 13 March

A later start this afternoon. The weather had started to brighten as we left, it was certainly starting to feel a little Spring-like; there was a lot of bird song which was really nice.

We initially walked along Brigsteer Road picking up our usual path onto Scout Scar. As the path reached its highest point, we turned left towards the wall near “Helsington Barrows” on the Ordnance Survey map. We went through the gate in the wall, and walked through the woods back down to another gate which put us back onto the Brigsteer Road.

There were some nice views down towards Kendal from the road. We took the footpath immediately after Warriner’s Wood. This path crossed a couple of fields, before an underpass took us beneath the A591.

There were some daffodils in full bloom around Helsington Laithes which added to the Spring feel of the day. A short but enjoyable walk.
