Walking the Cumbria Way

Walking the Cumbria Way

by: John Gillham
This is a guidebook to the 73-mile Cumbria Way, an easy long-distance walk through the heart of the Lake District National Park, from Ulverston in the south to Carlisle in the north, with good transport links to either end. The route is largely low-level but this guide offers alternative mountain days to climb some of the famous fells as an option.
The guide divides the route into 5 stages of between 12 and 16 miles, but there is plenty of opportunity to plan your itinerary for a more easy-going 7 to 8 days. The Lake District is a walkers paradise, and there is no better way to experience the fells, lakes and woodlands of the Lake District than by trekking through their midst.
The guidebook also provides useful information for every stage, from accommodation to available facilities along the way, as well as colour Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 scale mapping to compliment the route finding instructions. The text also includes details on points of interest. There are four appendices providing additional practical information for planning. These are: route summary table; facilities summary table; accommodation stage by stage; useful contacts. The result is a guidebook that enhances a walk on the Cumbria Way, as well as providing the walker with the tools to complete the trek.
The stages are as follows: Stage 1 Ulverston to Coniston (or Torver); Stage 2 Coniston to Great Langdale; Stage 3 Great Langdale to Keswick; Stage 4 Keswick to Caldbeck; Stage 5 Caldbeck to Carlisle.
