Stones & Stumps in the Lowther Valley, Cumbria
« on: October 30, 2012, 12:58:15 pm »
The Stones & Stumps series by martlakes are 18 GCs spread out on either of the M6 motorway between Clifton and Hackthorpe. All 18 can be found in one gargantuan walk, but I cut it down to several smaller walks to fit the time available with TIGG. None can be found as cache and dash. All have to be walked to.

We did #4- #10 as one loop. Parking in Hackthorpe. Now there are extra GCs to find in Lowther Park.

Another loop starts at the superb cafe at Melkinthorpe garden centre. This cafe is to die for. Gluten free chocolate cake. Yumm. Not your usual garden centre as it is in several food guides. Visit S&S #14, #13, #12, #11 and We All Scream Tarmac can be avoided by taking muddy paths across fields.

Final loop. Parked in Clifton. found S&S #18, #17, #16, #15 and the Last Battlefield in England. Nearly all on paths.

To complete the series, parked in Clifton and walked there and back past S&S #1, #2, #3 and Castle View GC and Stumped by the River GC.

Make your own route up but above makes the series bite size.
