Cistercian Way (Cumbria)

39 km / 24 miles

Cumbria
The route is no longer marked on OS maps and is not endorsed by Cumbria County Council. It is only partially waymarked.

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. The train should be used between Cark and Ulverston as there is no safe route across the sands. From Ulverston the Way continues by Dalton to Furness Abbey and the coast.
