46 47 Supernatural encounters are reported on the corpse road from Arndale to Beetham church in Cumbria. The path, which consists of a series of straight sections, follows a dead straight course from Hazelslack Tower Farm, named after the ruined stone fortress that still stands on the farm, to the Fairy Steps. At Whin Scar the straight corpse road is forced to make a series of dogleg turns as it ascends the scar in two flights of stone steps. The second flight is known locally as the Fairy Steps and is an impossibly steep rockcut stairway at the bottom of a very narrow gully. The idea that pallbearers could manoeuvre a coffin up this cleft is hard to credit. It is at the Fairy Steps where tradition has it that your wish will be granted by the fairies if you can skip up the stairway without touching the sides. The author has attempted this feat without success. In places the cleft is as narrow as a foot at shoulder height. Those with the second sight are believed to be able to witness the fairy folk skipping up the steps. Opposite The impossibly narrow Fairy Steps in Cumbria. Skipping fairies not shown.
