Call for Hours

If you can manage the climb up Holcombe Hill then this walk up to Peel Tower is a rewarding one. You also have the opportunity to extend the walk to suit your taste (and the weather) should you wish. There are quite a few places you could pick to start this walk, but good point is the car park on Lumb Carr Road. From here the walk up is a fairly steady climb with the views getting better as you progress. If you fancy taking on the final challenge then Peel Tower itself is open to climb on most.
