Miller's Way (and Miller's Way 2)

... The great, great grandson of Jonathan Dodgson Carr 'has officially launched The Miller’s Way 2. Andrew Carr unveiled a large version of the special waymarker that signposts the 25 mile route from Carlisle’s Market Cross to our flour mill at Silloth ... The walk - which passes through several villages on the Solway Plain, past Holme Cultram Abbey and across Silloth Golf Course - was plotted by experienced Carlisle rambler Stan Benson ...

'Carrs Breadmaker has produced a special route guide called "The Miller’s Way - A Journey of Destiny". This exclusive guide includes details of the Kendal - Carlisle Miller’s Way and incorporates Miller’s Way 2.'

Type of Walk

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.
