Walk report by Simeon OrmeArnside Knott is one of those places that I cycle pass many times but never been up, there was dry weather window for the Sunday morning, so decide head out early (that was before 8am). The secret of visiting the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is get there early when using the motor car especially at weekends as fairly limited places to park around the two hot spots of Silverdale and Arnside. Unfortunately for the cyclist, its area best explore on two feet if want to go off-road, as there only a few bridleways in ANOB.So when most of North Lancashire was thinking about get up on Sunday morning, I put the rucksack in the back of the car and off to Arnside Knott, which was around 25 minute drive to the National Trust Car Park at side of Arnside Knott which is free to park at.I am not going add a route of the walk that I did which was around mile and half to do.From the car park, I headed along the bridleway towards Arnside Tower, its about five to ten minute walk until you get to main footpath up to Arnside Knott, you know when you get there its cross roads of paths, just follow the signpost for Arnside Knott.It did not click at first but way up the climb to Arnside Knott, there is National Trust Way Mark around Arnside Knott which good ideal to follow to see all the views. I took about two hours walking around the Knott, stopping to take photos every few minutes and it was around 10.30am when found myself back on bridleway which runs over the shoulder of Arnside Knott, I could of extended the walk but I though I was pushing my luck staying dry so headed off home to edit the photos that I took.You can click here to see the photos of 30th May ride to Great Stone of Fourstones or you can checkout the What’s New Page to see what’s new on the site.
