River Lyvennet Villages

L 140
  • Explore 2 peaceful, unspoilt villages
  • Quiet walking on the remote moors
  • Views across to the Eden valley

Crosby Ravensworth and Maulds Meaburn are a couple of hidden gems, tucked away in an unfashionable part of the Cumbrian Pennines. I visited on a warm misty Autumn day and found a real sense of undiscovered peace about the villages and the nearby walking. The River Lyvennet runs road side in the villages and adds to the air of tranquility, sheep park themselves in the centre of the villages and the quiet of the excellent church in Crosby Ravensworth is well worth a visit. The walk itself took me to Reagill Grange, Crake Trees Manor and Wickerslack farm which offers some interesting views towards the Eden Valley.

Recommend: It is possible to combine this walk with a longer one over the moors from Crosby Ravensworth walk for a real understanding of the area. Click here
