Follow the River Gelt through Gelt Woods Nature Reserve, on this delightful walk near Brampton, Cumbria. There's pretty bluebells in the spring, the running waters of the river and lots of wildlife to look out for in the shady woods.
You can start your walk from the car park at Low Gelt Bridge and then head south along the river to Middle Gelt Bridge and High Gelt Bridge. It's just under 3 miles to High Gelt so about 6 miles there and back.
As you make your way through the first section of the woods, look out for the rock with an inscription carved by a Roman soldier in the early part of the 3rd Century.
The woods are located just a mile to the west of Talkin Tarn Country Park. This is a great place to extend your walk with nice footpaths to follow around the large glacial tarn.
