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 15.2 kilometre Trevithick Trail commemorates the first journey by a steam locomotive to pull a load on rails in 1804, the precursor of the Railway Age which changed the world in the 19th century ... Two years after the completion of its construction in 1802, the Cornishman Richard Trevithick ran a steam locomotive along its length, an event that was to establish a landmark in the history of railway development and forever link the tramroad with the name of the locomotive's constructor.'
