Thirlmere Way

209 km / 130 miles

Cumbria, Gtr Manchester, Lancashire
A walk along the route of one source of Manchester's water supply leading from the flooded valleys of Thirlmere in the Lake District that provide it, that originally comprised two smaller lakes. The 2 metre wide aqueduct, always running near to this walk, was completed in 1894 to supplement supplies from Londendale and Haweswater. Ingeniously routed, gravity alone provides the aqueduct's power and there are no pumps.

The Way provides a meandering link from the Greater Manchester conurbation through Lancashire to Cumbria visiting Hulton, Abbey Village, Longridge, Dolphinholme, Caton, Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal, Windermere and Grasmere.

An outline of the route and details of the history of the aqueduct appear on the websites below.
