Morland

Morland

The approach to the village from Great Strickland reveals a vista of modern outskirts, however, the centre of Morland more than makes up for this.  Turn right at the (now closed) garage (the church opposite has an Anglo-Saxon tower) and follow the road downhill to the village square, where the Mill Yard Café and Crown pub face each other by the bridge over Morland Beck.

Leave Morland down Water Street (turn right at the pub) and follow the road for a mile or so to a crossroads by an electricity substation. Turn left here (signpost to King’s Meaburn) and after an undulating ride cross the ford (use the bridge for preference as the concrete of the ford is very slippery) and climb a short and steep hill into King’s Meaburn.
