Image of Ewbank Scar

A walk with a small cathedral, a Viking god, exotic parrots, wild woods, a towering limestone cliff and nine mysterious cairns.

* Please note, the Ewbank Scar footpath was lost in Storm Desmond in 2015 and had three landslides and is not safe. We understand that people are still getting through, but it is not on the official Right of Way.*
