is the Westmorland Way?
am not entirely sure.
does not seem to be a long distance path recognised
by the authorities in the way the Dales Way, the Cumbrian
Way and the Cumbrian Coastal Path are.
have its own website but the route description is vague
and does not correspond with the virtual map, which
implies it is a road slog other than where it takes
an impossible straight line from Patterdale to Grasmere.
are other websites that mention the Wway but none that
I found gave detailed route guidance- they seemed to
be selling walking tours and no doubt they instruct
those who sign up where they should go. But others
have to remain ignorant.
that this mattered to us. We had heard good things
about the route and if we had to make up the detail
as we went along, that was no great problem especially
as we would be doing it in bite sized chunks with quite
a lot of off-route additions.
time will tell how much further than the stated 95 miles
will be our tour through the old county of Westmorland,
starting at its ancient capital, wandering across the
Eden valley, limestone pavements, Lakeland fells before
heading down to Westmorland's only bit of coastline
