Westmorland Heritage Walk

325 km / 202 miles

Cumbria
This is an old walk not previously recorded by the LDWA. It is a very challenging 200-mile walk from Arnside anti-clockwise around the old county only venturing slightly outside the boundary into neighbouring Lancashire, Yorkshire and 'old' Cumberland, to its end at Grange-over-Sands. Parts of the route - the Howgills, the Pennines and Lakeland fells - attract low cloud and inclement weather at certain times of the year and an alternative to the high tops justifies a low level variation on such occasions. Walkers will need to carry Ordnance Survey maps to aid navigation and plan for escapes routes in emergencies or to find accommodation. The old publication is listed below.
