This two mile, out and back, walk is extremely easy to follow. As you leave the car park at Askham Bridge you will see a signpost for Eamont Bridge or Whale, see photo two. Follow the sign for Eamont Bridge – here you will see the well maintained, pedestrianised path. Follow this path, keeping the River Lowther on your left hand side, for approximately one mile until you reach an option to turn left to Eamont Bridge or right to Lowther Castle.
At this point we had a few tired legs so we decided to turn around and retrace our steps back to the car park, stopping for a play by the river before we left.
This walk meets a route that we have previously reviewed – Eamont Bridge to Lowther. You could walk/bike all the way to Eamont Bridge from Askham Bridge for an extra long walk. To view the Eamont Bridge walk please click here.
