Parkhouse hill and Chrome hill are known as the ‘Dragons back’ these huge chunks of limestone are coral reefs left towering high above the landscape from when a warm sea submerged the peak, more 340 million years ago. These hills have been noted as an official Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the wide range of limestone flora so they are a truly spectacular place to walk. The walk involves quite a lot of height gain – for people who are fit and active this will not cause a problem, but there are some steep ascents and descents over slippery limestone which need care. A great walk with fantastic photo opportunities, definitely a walk you will remember
The Coast to Coast walk is the brainchild of Alfred Wainwright, a well-known writer and hill-walker. The 190 mile walk from St Bees to Robin Hoods Bay crosses 3 National Parks, undoubtedly some of England’s finest scenery. Starting beside the Irish Sea with wonderful walking through the mountains of the Lake District, then across the Pennines and down Swaledale, the North York Moors and then on to dramatic coastal scenery on the east coast. This Coast to Coast Guided Walking Holiday will be an adventure you will never forget.
