The Wild Beauty of the Coast to Coast Path

Nannycatch Gate, Cleator, Coast to Coast

Nannycatch Gate is the junction where the Nannycatch Road and the valleys of Uldale and Nannycatch all meet. The Kirk Beck runs along the Uldale Valley and then into the Nannycatch Valley, where it becomes the Nannycatch Beck. The Nannycatch Valley is a narrow, very attractive valley, sandwiched between the Steep eastern scree slopes of Flat Fell and the lower slope of Blakeley Raise.

Between Nannycatch Gate and Near Thwaites are some ancient standing stones. The Coast to Coast walk passes over Dent Fell, along the Uldale Valley and along the Nannycatch Valley en route to Ennerdale Bridge.

The sudden impact of entering the Nannycatch Valley often causes an unexpected surprise to Coast to Coast walkers. It is so different from the surrounding scenery and almost idyllic in outlook. If the weather permits it is most certainly a place to enjoy a picnic before completing the rest of the day's walk.
