Sizergh - Romney inspired guided walk: Gunpowder Gorge

Step into the frame of a painting take a guided walk to Gunpowder Gorge on the River Kent to see the landscape captured by local artist George Romney in the 1760s. Spot dippers and kingfishers skipping from rock to rock in search of their next meal, and if youre lucky you might even catch sight of an otter. The three-mile loop, which includes farmland, ancient woodlands as well as the dramatic river gorge, takes about 22.5 hours. The portrait Charles Strickland with a fishing rod has returned to Sizergh and can be seen in the Drawing Room at the castle, so why not pop in afterwards to see how the same landscape looked over 250 years ago' Booking Advisable.
