Foxfield Duddon mosses circular walk

4 miles (6km)

2 hours

Station: Foxfield

Terrain: short section of road then paths with boardwalks and farm roads which can be boggy in places. Only suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs by following alternative quiet roads in places.

Refreshments: Prince of Wales pub opposite station (Friday-Sunday lunchtimes and all evenings)

Turn right from the station onto the A595 and follow it for ¼ mile to the second turning on the right. Follow the lane to a bridge, cross it then follow the track to a fork. Take the left branch and follow the track past the two cottages to the entrance to Duddon Mosses Nature Reserve. A tree-lined track on the left leads beside Otter Pool stream and around the edge of the moss. Follow it, taking time to explore sections of the two boardwalks that branch off left and right, until you reach a footpath junction at Bank End Moss. (For a shorter walk turn back here.) Turn right and head along the path for ¼ mile to a footbridge. Cross it and then continue along the narrow and often damp path as it turns right then left to reach the road beside the farm at Waitham Hill. Turn right on to the farm road and follow it over Angerton Moss bearing left to the level crossing. Carefully cross the line and then turn right at the next junction. The road leads along the foreshore to the level crossing you passed at the start of the walk. Turn left and follow the main road back to the station.
