Across a field and then a bridge, we then follow a path that soon merges with the Cumbria Way. At Bell Bridge, we cross and descend into the field, and we're on a riverside walk for some miles now, lasting until we're past Rose Castle. Past Rose Castle, we head inland and uphill, passing Lime House school, then a farmtrack past Hawksdale Hall and into Bridge End, where there is a pub and a picnic area!...
