Duddon Iron Furnace

Start point: Corney Fell road (SD 197 883)

Duddon Iron Furnace and Ash House Standing Stones

Distance: 2 miles     Total Ascent: 140 metres     Time Taken: 1 hour

Weather: Grey and overcast, 14°C.

There was no chance of any decent views from anywhere today as it was so grey with lots of low-lying cloud and plenty of rain about. I ended up having a low level walk from Duddon Bridge and visited the excellently renovated Duddon Iron Furnace and walked through ancient woodland to find the Ash House Standing Stones, one of the many megaliths in the area; the Wordsworth mentioned Swinside Stone Circle is less than a mile away, as is the Lacra megalith complex.
