Grange-Over-Sands, South Lakeland
'A route along the paths, tracks and byways of the low limestone hills that fringe the northern shores of Morecambe Bay via woodlands to Hampsfell and Cartmel Priory to Cark and Holker Hall. The route then continues over the sands of the Leven Estuary, but this is dangerous and should only be attempted with the recognised Sand Pilot. Otherwise the train should be caught to Ulverston where the Way continues by Dalton to Furness Abbey and the coast.'

Ulverston, South Lakeland
'Starts in Ulverston and heads Northwards though the Lake District to finish in Carlisle. This is just the defined direction though and it is perfectly fine to walk Southwards from Carlisle to Ulverston. The Hadrian's Wall Path also passes through Carlisle and so there is an option to link the two walks into one for a longer jaunt.'
