Focus On: Wilderhope Coppice Walk

Distance: 2km

Duration: 45mins

Start Point: Wilderhope Manor NT Car Park

Difficulty: Medium

Description: The walk starts at Wilderhope Manor, home of Major Thomas Smallman who is said to have escaped pursuit by jumping his horse off "Major's Leap", giving it its name. The walk winds through the fields and woodlands of Wilderhope Farm towards View Edge, another limestone escarpment. It then continues through Wilderhope Coppice which covers View Edge before heading back towards the Manor. Be sure to visit the "Pudding Bag" on your way past; a flower-rich meadow hidden by trees.
