Cistercian Way (Cumbria)

39 km / 24 miles

Cumbria
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.

The publication is no longer available. The route is only partially marked on OS mapping and it is not clear which paths to follow between Cawk and Ulverston. Photocopies of the route are still available from Ulverston TIC
