Approx. 4 miles
A half-day walk to explore the remains and history of Errwood Hall, followed by a winding ascent to the family cemetery, then a meander up to the valley to visit St Joseph's Shrine, and finally a climb to the top of Foxlow Edge, where we will encounter panoramic views.
To assist in your understanding of the ruins of the hall, you can download a recently created app about the site before you leave home: The app is free and available to download on the App Store and Google Play. Just type in Errwood Hall Revealed and follow the prompts to install/download.
Due to the remote nature of the Errwood Hall site there is no WiFi provision and limited mobile phone signal. Visitors should download the app via WiFi before visiting to avoid inconvenience and unnecessary data usage charges.
