Furness Way

Furness Way

Furness Way

by: Paul Hannon
Furness Way is a 75 mile long distance path across southern Lakeland, from Arnside on the eastern side of Morecombe Bay to Ravenglass on the Irish Sea. The aim of the route is to cross the southern Lake District, a relatively quieter region, by traversing a good deal of the old county of Lancashire, north of the Sands. The main portion of this once detached part of Lancashire has been known for centuries as Furness, giving its name to the route.

The walk offers a wide range of landscape from mountain passes to river estuaries, through beautiful woodland and by charming riverbanks and villages. It provides an opportunity to explore the very best of High Furness and the surrounding area including Lyth Valley, Cartmel, Coniston, the Duddon Valley and Eskdale. The Furness way also links up with two other Cumbrian LDP's, Westmorland Way and Cumberland Way.

As with all Paul Hannon's guides the text is concise and clear and includes well written additional information about things and places of interest and essential practical information. The guide is attractively illustrated with line drawings and also provides sketch maps, although you will require the appropriate OS maps.
