Settle to Carlisle Way
The Settle to Carlisle Way is a walking route that runs from station to station, mostly within sight of England’s famously rescued railway: ‘the line that refused to die’. It goes for 97 miles (156 km) northward from Settle, through the Yorkshire Dales National Park and into Cumbria ending in the historic border city of Carlisle.
This route has no official status, and no dedicated waymarking. Whilst the guidebook gives detailed directions and parts of the route are easy to follow some sections are unsuitable for novice walkers unless accompanied by somebody with map and compass skills.
