Bolton Park and Barden Fell Circular
Walk 5 - Bolton Park and Barden Fell Circular -5 miles - a family walk A pleasant walk into upland areas with limited exposure. Start at Cavendish Pavilion (parking fee payable) and cross wooden bridge. Cross minor road and continue up farm road through Bolton Park Farm. The vehicle track continues past farm and through estate emerging at access area. Keep to right hand track (the left hand track goes to a remote house only). After 1/4 mile take right hand track at T junction. About 100m on left (up a slight incline) there is a useful shooting hut that could be used as a refuge. Continue along track. This eventually descends to cross a beck by means of a ford. The track now proceeds along valley side descending slowly to Storriths. There are several signposts.
