The Cumbria Coastal Way is a continuous walking route from north Lancashire towards the Scottish border and links a number of gems of landscape, wildlife, archaeology and history that are frequently found on this little-known coastline. The route follows the fascinating Cumbria coast from the boundary with Lancashire, around the southern Cumbrian peninsulas with their vast stretches of estuarine sands, through the Lake District National Park and the industrial heritage of the west coast, along the Solway Firth and through rough border country to the historic city of Carlisle with glimpses of Hadrian's Wall, then into Scotland to end at the famous border town of Gretna. The route was established by Cumbria Council in the late 1980s and can be walked in its entirety, or walked in sections, by people of all ages and abilities. It is well supported by public transport.
'While Cumbria's Lake District is famous worldwide, the county's coast is often unjustly overlooked. The coloured maps in this guide are really excellent and the photographs have been carefully chosen to allow the walker to look forward and not to miss anything of interest. Ian and Krysia have worked together on several books of walks in northwest of England. Becasue I know this coast from Drigg Point northwards very well, I feel that they should be congratulated on producing such a meticulously well-written book which fills a walking gap on this rarely visited, but very beautiful coast.'
