Bowland Climber’s last post, “Walk your paths...if you can” ( Bowland Climber ) expressed concern at waterlogged footpaths, and discussed alternative road walking, and I sympathise, but...
I intend to record more of these stats to enable a more reliable comparison.
|The start (SD 489 924) is at the car park, bottom of this map, about 3km west of Kendal. My route was anticlockwise|
|The car park is classic limestone pavement - it would be the envy of any motor manufacturer for use on their test track.|
|Cunswick Scar - perfect walking on cropped turf, even in current muddy conditions|
|Distant Kendal from the cairn on Cunswick Scar|
|Another for my "Signs" collection. I reckon it warns of a berserk runner who has gone round the bend?|
|Anyone for a bath?|
|This is a path I could have taken from Fell Gate to Capplerigg (see map), but avoided - here it emerges onto the road at Capplerigg|
|The strangely named Bonfire Hall. This is shown as an unfenced track on the OS map|
|My track emerges bottom right to water's edge. At first I though it would be a wading job, but then noticed the stone bridge, bottom left.|
