GLW1302 : Heversham Head and Rowell

Sunday 17th February 2013

Today was Julie's Open Garden Day featuring the snowdrops.  Being sunny, we thought we would combine a visit with a walk up to Heversham Head.  We parked near the school rugby pitches and headed into the village.  We would have gone along by the church but time was a little tight so we climbed the earlier path to the Head summit.  The view is splendid, whether from the trig point or from the Millennium Column (see BB1128 for detail).

We left the Head at the east end, encountering a lovely little Lakeland Terrier that we would happily have taken home, then headed down through Woodhouse.  The path along by the railway was exceedingly boggy; under the bridge and alongside the cows, rather mucky.  It was a relief to emerge and cross the road to Rowell's Open Garden.  Julie was greeting visitors in a splendid country outfit.  The gardens, as ever, looked attractive with several novel features although I find them rather more interesting at the summer open day.

The return to the car was via a rather drier route under foot, mostly on the road.

As a walk, unless the Rowell Garden is open, there are better circuits that include Heversham Head.  One looping round Levens Park, past Levens Hall and Hincaster Hall perhaps.  Or the somewhat longer BB1128.
