Great Lakes Connection: Grange over Sands to Penrith

Great Lakes Connection: Grange over Sands to Penrith

Connecting two iconic lakes, each with their own full-length ferry services, one can simply cruise the lake passages if desired. In its entirety the walking route engages with a fabulous mix of natural and human ingredients - fields, woods, open pasture, with a taster of wild fell too, as well as attractive communities.

Starting on the shores of Morecambe Bay at the railway station of the Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands the route crosses the little limestone hill of Hampsfell to visit Cartmel, famed for its remarkable Priory, Sticky Toffee Pudding and National Hunt Racecourse.

Quiet tracks lead north to Lakeside on Windermere, where the first ferry may be boarded, or the wooded shores explored via Claife Viewing Station and Wray Castle.

The journey then climbs secretive Scandale and slips over the fell pass into Caiston Glen and leads by Brothers Water to Patterdale and Glenridding. The second dedicated lake cruise may be boarded here, or Ullswater’s western shores enjoyed on foot via Aira Force to reach Pooley Bridge.

Here field-paths accompany the outflowing River Eamont, ending conveniently at Penrith railway station.
