Settle to Carlisle Way –

A Rucksack Readers adventurous walk

Vivienne Crow


This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy your Settle to Carlisle Way walk: detailed route descriptions, background on the railway, geology and scenery wildlife information supported by superb photographs, map of the entire route in 5 drop-down panels, information about public transport and travel, all on water-resistant paper.

The Settle to Carlisle Way is a newly developed route that runs from station to station, mostly within sight of the famous railway. It goes for 97 miles (156 km) northward from Settle, soon enjoying great views of the Three Peaks as it progresses through the Yorkshire Dales National Park, past the Ribblehead Viaduct and over Blea Moor tunnel. Entering Cumbria via lonely Mallerstang, the Way passes beneath Wild Boar Fell and descends gently through the delightful valley of the River Eden. Here it passes Long Meg and her Daughters stone circle and moves on to Armathwaite, ending in the historic border city of Carlisle.
