Details: From the car park, which is S of the village on the Old Railway track, we make our way NW to a minor road where we turn left. After 500 metres we again turn left and follow a track/footpath past Swarthy Mere to the S edge of Romaldkirk Moor. Here we turn left along a restricted byway which leads us to a crossroads where we turn right. Passing Currick Rigg farm we are soon back on a footpath which leads to Gill Field and then West End. From here the farm’s access track and then a footpath lead us back to the former railway track, which we follow back to our starting point.
