From the car park, turn right and walk along the road.
Head on the public footpath between the school.
Follow the track over the bridge and through the buildings of Side Farm.
Turn left after the farm and follow the track up towards Devil's Chimney.
Taking care over the rocks, trek down the path before climbing again to reach Silver Crag.
To get to Silver Point, bear left and climb to the point.
Once off Sliver Point, head left, past a small stream and then right at the split in the path.
Care is needed on the climb.
Then gradually follow the path down, past old quarry workings on your left.
Bear right, cross the footbridge leading to a gate at the end of the track.
Go left through the gate, and turn right on the road to head back to the car park.
