Nannycatch Gate, Cleator, Coast to Coast
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.
