The Corpse Roads Of Cumbria: Featuring Walks Along The County's Ancient Paths

The Corpse Roads Of Cumbria: Featuring Walks Along The County's Ancient Paths

The enigmatic name hints at their curious origins. These paths were used until the 18th Century to transport coffins from the remote villages to the 'mother' church. Eventually villagers petitioned for their own churches and burial rights but the corpse roads remained.

A few are still marked on Ordnance Survey maps and are even signposted. But others are just a dim memory or half-remembered legend.

Alan Cleaver and Lesley Park have researched these ancient paths preserving their route for future generations and sharing them in this book for those who want to explore them further.
