Possibly the most ill-advised sign ever erected by a land-owner, who is absolutely correct in stating that there is no right of way along the edge of the field.  To stay on the right of way, walkers should continue along the trodden riverside path for 100 yards, then walk diagonally to the wall, trampling the farmer's crops.

Sunday 11 June, Kirkcarrion.

Walkers: 7  

An evening stroll of less than a mile to Kirkcarrion, a Bronze Age burial mound that looms over Middleton.  In years gone by, local people stayed well clear of the hillock, as it was regarded with superstition.  It was reputed to be haunted by a spectral horseman and his accompanying foot soldiers. Trees were planted in the 1930s, and three small cairns have since appeared.  A dry stone wall surrounds the site.
