Walks in Cumbria

Not many people know that there are two National Parks that contain bits of Cumbria – the wonderful Lake District & the gentle pretty Westmorland Dales.

We run events both in the parks and also in beautiful quiet corners of the county – details can be found below.

Millom Weekly Walk & Talk

15 Jul 24 - 11:00 AM
The weekly Walk & Talk leaves from Millom Safe Space (aka Tin Chapel / Pensioners Hall) around 11am every week. These weekly walks are a gentle, easy & safe way to meet other folks, have a natter, take your mind off life’s worries for a while. We’ll usually have a wander out to the coast and maybe round the sea wall or through the reserve, sometimes we only go as far as the benches by the pool – we want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to attend so we’re putting on walks you can all attend.

Burton-in-Kendal and surrounding area

08 Aug 24 - 13:00
This is an undulating walk will focus on positives and celebrating being outside in a small group. We'll walk from Plain Quarry car park, through the woods and then up to Burton Fell – where we might pause a while to take in the views. We'll then head back and chat along the way if anyone fancies it. A day to appreciate summer is here.
