Welcome to Cumbria LDWA Group

We are a small group numerically but are favoured by easy access to vast areas of magnificent countryside. Most of the members live in or around Carlisle, Keswick and Penrith so our walks usually feature the Lake District, Eden Valley Northern Pennines and Border Country.Currently we have a monthly social walk (see Future Events) at which LDWA members and their guests are guaranteed to receive a friendly welcome. We are also pleased to welcome any non-LDWA members interested in learning more about us and the Association. It is suggested that anyone wishing to join one of our walks should contact the Walk Leader or Walks Secretary before the walk to confirm details.A short report on each walk together with any appropriate pictures will be published in Latest News.

Social walks are back!  'Tales of the Riverbank II' took place on Sunday 16th August and was our first walk since the national lockdown in March made group walks no longer possible. See the report and photographs via the link below.  We are now pleased to report that we are resuming our monthly social walks programme.  If you would like to join us, please contact the leader in advance of the walk for further details.  We are also on Facebook; look our for the Cumbria LDWA page.

Our October walk, 'East and West of Wetheral' took place on Sunday 25th October.  It would normally have been our AGM walk but unfortunately, due to the current COVID restrictions, it is not yet possible to hold our AGM and group meal.

Unfortunately, due to the second National Lockdown, our November walk, 'Dalston Dander' had to be cancelled. Happily, we were able to offer this walk in December, when the lockdown came to an end.  The report is now available to view..
