836 Rudyard

Famous for its enormous pike, as well as inspiring the Christian name of Rudyard Kipling, for this is where his parents first met, Rudyard Lake has the added attraction of a miniature steam railway. But first we explore some quiet field paths before returning to follow the train where, if you've timed it right, you can finish the walk in style.
