Jockey Shield

The Gelt river rises above the small hill village of Castle Carrock. Here you will find Jockey Shield and the RSPB bird reserve of Upper Geltsdale. There is a short walk down to the valley floor from the car park but you then have miles of walking and exploration ahead of you.

A short way upstream is a small waterfall and deep pool known to the locals as the swimming hole and very welcome it can be on a hot summer day.
