The Big Smile 2022: Raby Castle & Estate

About this event

*This is a charitable fundraising event. Please see our website for more details on the fundraising expectations for all participants joining us on The Big Smile!*

The first step of the The Big Smile begins in the magnificent grounds of stunning Raby Castle. We start by following a broad path through verdant grasslands, home to Red and Fallow Deer herds, as we take in the splendour of the fourteenth-century medieval castle.

We wander through Ladywood and up towards Raby Home Farm and Shotton, sharing the beautiful countryside with some superb flora and fauna. We eventually leave the Raby estate, and find ourselves heading over Cockfield Fell, a land pockmarked with evidence of ancient human settlements, including flint arrowheads dating back to 8000 BC.

We skirt around Cockfield itself and return to Raby Estate, finishing back at Raby Castle - a fitting start to the Big Smile.
