The walk will commence at the car park on the outskirts of the village and proceed to look at the winter pasture of the Nether Wycoller vaccary together with the adjacent field system of the early settlement of Wycoller.  We will then proceed to look at the summer pasture of the vaccary.  From this high vantage point other features of the landscape will be identified including the Over Wycoller vaccary.  The walk will then conclude by walking alongside Wycoller Beck and through the village with its bridges and historic buildings.
