Tenterfield Cottage: The Surrounding Area
Swinside Stone Circle: There is still some discussion as to why the stone circle was built, many believe it was a meeting point, others believe it was used as a market place used for the slave trade. Whatever it's purpose it is certainally worth a visit.(5 min drive or 30 min walk from Tenterfield)
The hamlet of Hallthwaites is situated to the south westerly side of Blackcombe. The spire of St Anne's Church is visable in the foreground, marking the most northerly edge of Hallthwaites.
Blackcombe, one of my favourite walks, especially on a clear day when you can see Scotland, Wales, The Isle of Man, The Pennines and many of the lakeland's fells/mountains all from one view point! (5min drive away or for a longer walk it is possible to walk from Tenterfield)
Duddon Iron Furnace: Situated next to the river Duddon on the road to Corney fell. This old Iron furnace was used when the Duddon Valley had a thriving mining industry, the building is well maintained by the National Park authority, with easy access from the main road. (5 min drive or 1 hour walk from Tenterfield).
Silecroft Beach: a spectacular expance of sandy and shingle beach, plenty of car parking space and public amenities near by.When the tide is out there is plenty of sand to enjoy, and when the tide turns it will happily lap at the shingle bank. The cliffs of Gutterby can be seen in the distance, making for a very enjoyable evening stroll, especially when timed right the sunset is magnificent! In the evenings Silecroft beach is very popular with local fishermen (depending on tide times etc) catching Mackerel, Codling and Bass. (15min drive from Tenterfield).
Duddon Estuary: The river Duddon flows into the Estuary about a 20 min walk away from Tenterfield. The estuary is very popular with bird watchers looking for many species of wading bird, also mullet can be seen feeding near the surface of the brackesh water where the river and sea meet.
Ulpha Bridge: The river Duddon and its surrounding valley is well known by Wordsworth fans and also by family groups who come here to enjoy the crystal clear waters. Ulpha bridge is a mecca for the thrill seeking swimmers who enjoy juming into the deep pool below the bridge!
