A short run along the front of it at the ruined castle walls you will turn left slightly downhill then uphill to continue your Carlisle Castle tour. High above the park below, running to the far corner of Castle a sharp left awaits and a gentle drop back down toward Millennium Bridge to complete the Castle loop. Onto Devonshire Walk then left turn into the tree lined avenue leading to Sheepmount Sports Stadium.When reaching the Sheepmount go straight across the ring road and run along the river bank coming up the steps and under Eden Bridge carrying straight on past the Sands Centre and following the trail round to St Adians Road Bridge.
