This is a walk providing a fascinating insight into the old lead mining industries of Gunnerside Gill.
5.8 miles: Moderately strenuous
Abandoned mine workings appear round every corner of this dramatic gorge. A haunting and highly evocative landscape where you will see the remains of Bunton Mine, Sir Francis Mine, Blakethwaite Smelt Mill and the scars of hushing: All strangely beautiful in their own right.
With the Photo North Discovery Walks you'll never miss the exciting and interesting features that other walkers pass by.
