A FREE family friendly, accessible stroll with stories.


Up through the rhododendron woods, we’ll follow the winding path of stories all the way to the summit, with dragons and trolls, brave children and wicked witches, trickster spiders and cheeky monkeys for company! 

Your guide will be internationally renowned storyteller, Emily Hennessey, who lives in Cumbria and loves to explore landscapes and stories.

Suitable for all ages, both adults and children.

This StoryWalk will end at the summit and take around 75-90mins followed by visit to the nearby Blacksmiths Van for coffee and cake!

Dogs on leads welcome.
