Wyresdale Park Estate sits in an area renowned for beautiful walks: with views to the Irish Sea and the hills of the Lake District, surrounded by fell and lakes, it is easy to see why!

The popular circular walk of Nicky Nook fell and Grizedale Valley is around five miles in length and Wyresdale Park is the perfect starting point. Walks can be longer or shorter depending on your need.

We have a fun filled day of walks on the 25th August, raising money for St John’s Ambulance. Read on for more details:


Join the North West Air Ambulance Charity on our mission to keep our helicopters flying and saving lives by taking on our first ever Mission Walk.

This exciting new event will give you a glimpse of how our paramedics, doctors and pilots help to make a life changing difference to patients across the North West. Join us on this scenic walk and your fundraising will help us to continue our life saving missions.

Your mission will commence on Sunday 25th September and form part of our National Air Ambulance Week celebrations. Gather your family, friends and colleagues to join either our 10k, or 8.5k gentle family route, at Wyresdale Park, Scorton, nr. Preston, Lancashire.

There are 2 options to choose from:

10k walk – Take on the full 10k mission and enjoy the viewpoint at the top of Nicky Nook Fell, standing at an overall height of 215 meters, it’s an achievable climb of just 89 meters to the summit.

8.5k Gentle family walk – This slightly shorter, flatter and gentler route offers the beautiful scenery of Wyresdale Park without having to reach the peak of the fell.

Whichever route you choose, you’ll enjoy live entertainment, receive a special edition t‑shirt and once your mission is complete you will be rewarded with a medal to wear with pride!
