An interesting and easy excursion around the meres, lakes and River Wyre north of Scorton village.
Our circular walk starts at ‘Scorton Picnic Site’ on good footpaths, we follow the Wyre Way for much of the walk.
There is an optional detour to include Corless Mill and its waterwheel, situated in a quiet idyllic location by the River Wyre, it could be described as a typical Saxon settlement surrounded by woodland, meadow and the flowing river. Today the waterwheel and scattered millstones remind us of an industrial past, Corless Mill was grinding corn as late as the 1950’s.
The return route from Street uses footpaths through the wetlands and woodlands on the east bank of the Wyre and country estate of Wyresdale Park before returning via Scorton to ‘Scorton picnic site’.
