walk from Dunsop Bridge to Newton
walk starts in Dunsop Bridge just to the left of the post office.
A straight tracks leads to cottages, 20 yds after which the FP
is found on the right over a stile and up the steep bank. After
the next stone stile a steady walk uphill leads direct to Beatrix.
Follow the tarmac road around Beatrix and at the second house take
the left of the two double gates. The track leads to Back of Hill
Barn, after which bear slightly left. A gentle walk downhill over
two stiles leads to the crossing over Rough Syke and then straight
uphill to Rough Syke Barn.
walk continues to a ladder stile; a second similar stile is met
with a little further on. Follow the track which after a short
while turns sharp right. Keep straight on through the wooden gate
when the track turns sharp left. The path leads direct to Gamble
Hole Farm. Aim just to the left of the farm, go through the farm
gate, and carry straight on. At the end of the first field bear
left into the second field and walk diagonally to the far left
hand corner to meet the road. The FP carries on across the road
and goes over a beck. On ascending the other side bear right; the
path now goes through a series of fields down hill to Newton.
the Parkers Arms walk down the road and find the start of the path
on the right after crossing the bridge over the Hodder. The path
follows close to the bank of the Hodder and then over a series
of stiles and fields to emerge on the road just to the left of
the house at Foulscales. A short walk on the road leads to a farm
track on the right just after the last barn. A FP sign is seen
on the right a little way along this track; the path leads to a
footbridge over the Hodder, across sheep pasture to a stile just
to the right of Knoll Wood, and then onto the road.
FP starts again after a short walk down the road past Boarsden
and just to the right of the cottage. The path leads downhill to
the Hodder and follows the north bank of the river ending in the
road leading to Thorneyholme Hall. Turn right to the car park in
