Medium ~3k, Quite a lot of climb
Short ~1k , Suitable for children and absolute beginners.
Fees £3 Adults/ £1 students and juniors.
Controls SI units. Dibber hire available.
Offers of help……… would be appreciated especially bringing in controls before dark.
Limb Valley includes Whirlowbrook Park, Whinfell Quarry Garden and the woods either side of Whirlow Brook.
The woodland is mixed conifer and deciduous. Much of it is very runnable though partly steep valley sides, but there are patches of bramble and holly.More details about Limb Valley...
