The Wild Beauty of the Coast to Coast Path

Orton Scar - Orton - Coast to Coast Walk

Orton Scar, Orton, Coast to Coast

Orton Scar, together with the adjoining Great Asby Scar, are extensive areas of upland limestone pavement near to the village of Orton at the eastern end of Cumbria. The Coast to Coast path leaves Crosby Ravensworth Fell to proceed alongside the western edge of Orton Scar and then circumnavigates the Scar at Beacon Hill along the farmed lower southern slopes.

The moorland around Orton Scar featured in the 1996 movie of Anne Bronte's best selling novel, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.

The southern end of the scar is known as Beacon Hill. On the top of Beacon Hill is a monument erected to commemorate Queen Victoria's jubilee in 1987.
