Walking The Cumbria Way
The Cumbria Way links the market town of Ulverston, situated on the Furness peninsula in South Cumbria to the historic city of Carlisle in the north.
The trail is 73 miles (117 km) long passing through the heart of the Lake District. Whilst it's a relatively low-level linear walk this guidebook by John Gillham also describes alternative mountain days which add the Coniston Fells, Glaramara and Skiddaw en route.
The guide divides the route into 5 stages of between 12 and 16 miles, but there is plenty of opportunity to plan your itinerary for a more easy-going 7 to 8 days. This guidebook also provides useful information for every stage, from accommodation to available facilities en route, as well as an annotated OS map and details on points of interest.
