Overview

'Copeland is very well placed for walking. You can enjoy an amble around one of the many villages and hamlets or undertake something more challenging like the "coast to coast walk". With most of the borough within the Lake District National Park you are guaranteed great countryside and endless opportunities for refreshment stops and overnight accommodation.'

Size (acreage)740
Overview

'This is a low level walk along forest roads, tracks and narrow footpaths. The path surface along the south side of Ennerdale is rocky with many trip hazards and some sections that are regularly very wet. The climb over Anglers Crag is very steep and includes a short exposed scramble with a significant drop into the lake.'

Overview

'Eskdale has a plethora of paths, lanes and bridle ways to explore, the valley is home to one of the most picturesque rivers in Britain, with easy paths to follow and plenty of welcoming hostelries. For the experienced walker and climber the options are almost endless, with access to some of the best mountains in England. Eskdale provides a challenging environment for the mountain walker, with technical rocky fells, steep climbs, traverses and ghylls to scramble up!'

Distance (miles)77
Overview

'A walk along the little-known western coastal Hadrianic frontier based upon the thesis that the Roman defences extended south beyond Maryport as far as Ravenglass, with its Roman Fort - Glannoventa.'

Clifford Jones is the originator of the thesis and 'writes walking guides about Roman routes in the area. His first book, Hadrian's Coastal Route is published elsewhere. The second, Eastern Hadrianic Way, is published by BJAP [Buckland Jones Archaeological Press]'.

Distance (miles)210
Overview

'The Ravenber is a challenging coast-to-coast walk from Ravenglass in Cumbria to Berwick-upon-Tweed, England's northernmost town. Following existing rights of way, the route leads the walker through terrain of dramatic contrasts. It passes first through the mountain heart of Lakeland, and traces the Roman road over the High Street Range; it crosses the pastoral Eden Valley, climbs the high Pennine, and heads towards the remote fell country of Northumberland. The vast northern forests and rounded heights of the Cheviot Hills give way to the leafy valley of the River Till, and finally the traveller follows the banks of the mighty River Tweed to reach the North Sea at Berwick.'
