A Cumbrian Way 2015

Last Year, 2014 expedition at Greenburn Mine.

A Cumbrian Way...Tuesday 30 June to Friday 3 July.

This year Pete and Lyn's expedition will be a four day high-level walk across Cumbria from the sea in the S. to Caldbeck in the north of the county. This is not the "Cumbria Way" of the guidebook, it is rather Pete's own Cumbrian Way, taking a high-level route across the tops of the fells rather than one down along the paths of the valley bottoms. There will be three overnight stays, two in Coniston and one in Keswick, transport and other organisational details will be arranged by ourselves. Only a day sack needs to be carried on the walks.

Tuesday 30/6...Day 1.

Transport by Minibus will be arranged early am. from Keswick to the starting point in the S. Lakes. The day's walk will terminate in Coniston where we stay overnight. Accommodation in Coniston is plentiful but early booking is recommended.
Only a day rucksack is required as the Minibus will deliver overnight bags to our Coniston accommodation.

Wednesday 1/7...Day 2.

The day's walk, from Coniston, will finish in Langdale from where transport will be arranged back to Coniston where we stay for a second night and enjoy a meal together at one of the town's fine dining establishments.

Thursday 2/7...Day 3.

Transport will take us back to our finishing point of yesterday and continue with our overnight bags to our accommodation in Keswick, where Day 3's walk terminates.

Friday 3/7...Day 4.

After a jolly evening together in Keswick the day's walk takes us over the Northern Fells to Caldbeck, our ultimate destination. From here return to Keswick will be arranged by Minibus.

Below are some images of the route taken by Pete in November 2014
