Kendal Limestone Way Walking Guidebook

Kendal Limestone Way Walking Guidebook

by: John Coppack
The Kendal Limestone Way is a 63 mile (101km) long linear walk from the market town of Skipton in North Yorkshire to the south Lake District town of Kendal.

The main theme of the walk is limestone. Over millions of years, major earthquakes have shaken the northern Pennines creating massive geological faults and fractures. To the north of the main fault lines lie the porous limestone uplands of the Yorkshire Dales National Park where rugged hills and towering cliffs of pearl white limestone dominate the landscape. A limestone landscape is also present in the south eastern corner of Cumbria where precipitous limestone ridges form a barrier between Lakeland hills and Morecombe Bay. The route taken by the Kendal Limestone Way explores this remarkable limestone landscape of northern England.

This guidebook provides clear easy-to-follow route directions supported by 25 maps dedicated to route navigation as well as a wealth of Practical information and safety advice. Features of historical, archaeological and geographical interest along the route are highlighted and captured in 92 colour photographs.

The route is almost entirely along field, woodland and riverside paths, canal towpaths, ancient tracks and bridleways and quiet country lanes. An average walker should be able to complete the walk within five or six days. Alternatively, individual sections could be walked at different times.

The book divides the route into seven sections each with its own chapter. The sections are as follows:
Skipton to Malham - 11 miles
Malham to Settle - 5.7 miles
Settle to Clapham - 7 miles
Clapham to Ingleton - 6.5 miles
Ingleton to Kirkby Lonsdale - 11.5 miles
Kirkby Lonsdale to Levens Bridge - 11.4 miles
Levens Bridge to Kendal - 9.2 miles
