    Beyond the legend about "steps of the fairies" (if you get through the stairs without touching the walls you will see them) and the short scale in the rock itself, the place is gorgeous, and the path to get there extremely suggestive, especially by completing in a couple of hours around Beetham. To add a touch more "noir" the trail is part of the "Coffin road" that funerals followed with the coffins to the Church from the remote villages of the surroundings

  • This is the home of magic. Trees with tiny fairy doors. If you can make it up the steps without touching the sides a fairy will make your wish come true! Lovely views over Arnside too.
  • Good spot, great views apart from lots of trees being cut down
  • Really interesting stairs cut into a block of limestone with great views on the top.
  • Great family walk, we parked in Beetham and walk up the field and through the wood with the abanded house. Great views, did notice that the trees with the fairy doors on them have gone.
  • Great for a lovely walk and adventure
