Halecat House Sculpture Trail


Halecat House Sculpture Trail

My mum invited us to join her on a walk to Halecat House to check out their new sculpture trail. We were half an hour behind them, due to tutoring, when we parked up near The Derby Arms and set off along the old A590 towards the public bridleway we needed:  

Derby Arms, Witherslack

The bridleway took us through Latterbarrow nature reserve and then across the fields. We had views of Whitbarrow one way and the Lakeland fells the other:

Briefly, we were on the road before taking a steep and narrow pathway down towards our destination. We are planning to visit Whitbarrow Scar for a hike over the summer:

We joined the sculpture trail part way round by coming in from the footpath. Luckily the trail was easy to follow with each piece numbered consecutively and red arrows when you needed to change direction. I will list each piece under the relevant photograph.

    We then headed back to the pub but this time we took the shorter road route:

    Walk back Halecat House

    It is such a pretty little area of Cumbria. Witherslack had many old cottages and things that caught the eye:

    In no time at all we were back to the start. I just had to nip back in my car to collect my dad:
