Ulpha Bridge, Duddon

A popular, picnic-friendly area of grassy riverside with a long deep section under the bridge, good for jumps. Shallows downstream. Easy parking. Village post office and shop nearby. Lovely.

Directions: Turn off the A595 for Ulpha and continue 4 miles to near LA20 6DT. Why not walk upstream a mile (river’s L bank) and find the huge stepping stones at Crosby Bridge, and another mile for more stepping stones and a deep pool and rapids at Jill’s Folly.
