Linear Walks in Cumbria and The Lake District

Q. Could I ask for more ideas for linear walks, with public transport start and finish, especially in Cumbria/Lake district. Most of the ones at present are part of long distance footpaths

John Willcox, Manchester


A. Sure - we will see what we can do.

In the meantime - see Linear Walks in The Lake District

Hope this helps

A. Hello John, how about the Limestone Link Walk from Arnside to Kirkby Lonsdale. This is approximately 12 miles in length, so a reasonable walker would probably be able to complete it in a day (and it isn't part of a long or middle distance route). You could use the train to Arnside, then walk via Hazelslack to the Fairy Steps, then through the Marble Quarry to Hale. Across Hale Moss and over the railway and the canal, through Holme and then up Hutton Roof Crags (highest point at about 900 feet) with excellent views. Then through the fields to briefly enter Lancashire then return to Cumbria on the approach to Kirkby Lonsdale. Then you could catch the bus to Lancaster (or Carnforth if the Carnforth Connect bus is reinstated). I hope this helps.
