Far West of the Lakes

Braithwaite to Cockermouth - 15 September 2018 September 11, 2010, was the last time we were in Cockermouth and between that date and May 2003 we visited a total of four times. So quite a gap between our last visit and the one coming up. However, because the main route comes in from the direction of Keswick on the A66 road there are…

Bainbridge to Redmire - 1 September 2018 We have been across to the Yorkshire Dales many times over the years and you would think that we would have been to about every location in the Dales or at least every location that has a pub where we could meet up at the finish of our walks.

The Cheviots in Summer

Whittingham to Clennell Hall - 7 July 2018 We go to this area of the Cheviots quite often considering all the different areas we walk in. This will be the sixth time which puts it in the top five locations in Northumberland only superseded by Wooler, Rothbury, Greenhead and Allendale. You can understand how Wooler and Rothbury might be at…
