A mystical, moss laden route which as the name suggests, has links to worship but not perhaps as you may imagine. Other than Luds Church’s religious history, there are also some myths that come with the area such as that Robin Hood and Friar Tuck are reported to have stayed in the cleft whilst hiding from the authorities
Stone steps and dark green colours a plenty – tranquil.
Whilst the ‘chasm’ is only 100m long it is certainly an interesting walk and can be combined with other surrounding walks to increase duration. Lud’s Church is accessible via the Roaches, the Back Forest and via Gradbach (all of which are scenic with many terrific walks).
