Named posts on green disc: Milnthorpe - CarlisleCumbria Coastal Way

Cumbria, Lancashire

293 km / 182 miles
The route is no longer marked on OS maps and is not endorsed by Cumbria County Council; some permissive paths no longer have access rights so diversions are necessary in places.

From Silverdale on Morecambe Bay, the route follows the fascinating Cumbria coast from the boundary with Lancashire, around the southern Cumbrian peninsulas with their vast stretches of estuarine sands, through the Lake District National Park and the industrial heritage of the west coast, along the Solway Firth and through rough border country with glimpses of Hadrian's Wall and along the River Eden to the historic city of Carlisle, then out on the Eden's other bank to Rockcliffe where the route heads inland to the finish at Metal Bridge.

An infrequent bus service links Metal Bridge with Gretna; alternatively a minor road adjacent to the M6 can be used.

The route links with the Coast to Coast route at St Bees and Hadrian's Wall Path National Trail at Bowness-on-Solway.

The coastal way can be walked in its entirety (1014 days), or in sections, by people 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.
