This guidebook follows the continuous 298km (182 mile) walking route from Silverdale, on Morecambe Bay, towards Gretna on the Scottish border. The route links a number of gems of landscape, wildlife, archaeology and history along this often little-known coastline. A walk of 10 to 14 days suitable for all levels of ability.
The Cumbria Coastal Way is a continuous 298km (182 mile) walking route from north Lancashire towards the Scottish border, and links a number of gems of landscape, wildlife, archaeology and history that are found on this often little-known coastline. Starting at Silverdale, on Morecambe Bay, and edging the coast up towards Gretna, the coastal way can be walked in its entirety (10-14 days), or in sections, by walkers of all ages and abilities. Much of the route-finding is easy, and the route, which rarely climbs higher than 100m above sea level, has been designed to link with public transport. This is a totally new edition of the guidebook written by two walkers who regularly explore Cumbria's diverse coast.
'While Cumbria's Lake District is famous worldwide, the county's coast is often unjustly overlooked. The coloured maps in this guide are really excellent and the photographs have been carefully chosen to allow the walker to look forward and not to miss anything of interest. Ian and Krysia have worked together on several books of walks in northwest of England. Becasue I know this coast from Drigg Point northwards very well, I feel that they should be congratulated on producing such a meticulously well-written book which fills a walking gap on this rarely visited, but very beautiful coast.'
