Ulpha Bridge

Ulpha Bridge, Duddon Valley

Hidden away in the south-west corner of the Lakes, the Duddon Valley is a remote area of river beaches, ancient woods and twisty lanes that lead to the sea. The lack of a grand lake means few tourists venture here, but at Ulpha Bridge grassy banks, fringed by trees, open out to shallows for minnowing or deeper pools for jumping. The little Post Office sells ice creams and fishing nets and there are 18th-century ruins to explore at Duddon Bridge old ironworks.
