Linear walking in Lakeland8th May 2007
Before I left Keswick on Friday, I did a spot of shopping in Booth’s supermarket before I caught an open top bus to Penrith. Booth’s also sells books and magazines as well as the usual supermarket wares and I picked up a Cicerone guide entitled Tour of the Lake District. Being on the look out for linear walks in the Lake District, this slim volume has given me a few ideas. In the main, the sections are relatively short but they can be combined with each other to make a bigger days out. The main route is lower level but higher level options are also presented as are ideas for short walks. Also in the linear walking theme, I found a site dedicated to the Cumbria Way, another lower level amble among the fells, and there were more concerned with the Allerdale Ramble. With these ideas, I should be able to plan some point-to-point strolls for any opportunities that might arise.
