Category:South Lakeland
Distance (miles)24
Overview

'A route along the paths, tracks and byways of the low limestone hills that fringe the northern shores of Morecambe Bay via woodlands to Hampsfell and Cartmel Priory to Cark and Holker Hall. The route then continues over the sands of the Leven Estuary, but this is dangerous and should only be attempted with the recognised Sand Pilot. Otherwise the train should be caught to Ulverston where the Way continues by Dalton to Furness Abbey and the coast.'

Distance (miles)70
Overview

'Starts in Ulverston and heads Northwards though the Lake District to finish in Carlisle. This is just the defined direction though and it is perfectly fine to walk Southwards from Carlisle to Ulverston. The Hadrian's Wall Path also passes through Carlisle and so there is an option to link the two walks into one for a longer jaunt.'

Distance (miles)16
Overview

'Grasmere and Great Langdale are separated by a long ridge of low fells ... Exploring the crest of this ridge makes a fascinating and exciting walk. There are a number of ways of tackling it, but arguably the best way to do it, is to split it over two days. Doing it this way rather than walking it in one long day gives plenty of time to relax and enjoy the experience with some classic real ale from Jennings!'

Category:South Lakeland
Overview

'The Low Furness Peninsula, a recognised Hidden Britain Centre, has shaped and been shaped by humankind for at least 3,000 years and the emerging history and archaeology add further mystery to the particular influences left by Druidic, Roman, Celtic, Viking, Puritan and Victorian faith builders and settlers in their time in this place. Few places in Britain can boast as much rural variety as this; miles of wild and diverse coastline to explore from the endless sands of Bardsea beach to the raw and atmospheric reaches of Roe Island and Piel Island. Inland, rich farmland, small hamlets and woods rise to reach the limestone pavements and heights of Birkrigg Common with its panoramic views of Morecambe Bay and of the nearby Lakeland fells.'

Overview

Miller's Way was 'created by Carrs Breadmaker to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Carrs - The Miller's Way is a glorious 51-mile walk from the heart of Kendal to the centre of Carlisle. It was inspired by the original journey made by Quaker miller Jonathan Dodgson Carr - who founded the Carr’s flour, bread and biscuit dynasty in Carlisle on June 29 1831 after leaving his home town of Kendal'.

Unfortunately, it seems that information about the Walk(s) is no longer available via the Carr's Flour Website.  But, a/the Route Guide can apparently be purchased from the Penrith Tourist Information Centre.

Overview

'The Reflections on History project explored the industrial archaeology of the Windermere catchment, looking at how humans have shaped the landscape around them. We investigated woodland industries, fulling mills, a quarry, mining remains and iron production sites through four community archaeology surveys.' ALERT The original Link used here seems to have disappeared, so I have replaced it with a more generic Link. You may be able to find details of the three Walks referenced by nosing around from the replacement Link or the alternative cited below.
