Orton is an attractive Cumbrian village on the Coast to Coast route initiated by Wainwright. 29 walkers headed out from the village to the Gamelands stone circle and up to the limestone hills above.

The walk through open moorland culminated in arrival at the summit of Beacon Hill.

Clear weather allowed for excellent views in all directions. After the return in sunshine, folk tarried awhile to sample the delights of Orton!
