A return to the Winster Valley (Witherslack, South Lakes)
Sunday, 21 May 2017
Start time: 11:00
Easy 9 miles / 14.5 km
Description: Whilst we start from the same location as last year's Winster walk this is a new walk! The walk takes us across the valley to Cartmel Fell and returns then towards Whitbarrow Scar- we will not be ascending to the top of this hence the easy grading. The walk follows gated tracks and roads as well as some fields and has many lovely views on the way.
Directions- Exit the M6 at J36 and follow the main road towards Kendal and Windermere. exit left down the A590 towards Grange. You are looking for a right turn which is signed to Witherslack and hatched off. It is approx 5 minutes past Levens.
On turning off the main road take the second left - Church Rd- (This means go straight on past the pub on the left). Carry straight on along this road ignoring a right hand turn and you will see the church on the left. Park on the road by the school or in the layby just past the church.
