The North West Way
A 13 day walk from Preston to Carlisle
The upland areas of the North of England are a joy to walk. Using a combination of recognised long distance paths the author traces a route from Preston to Carlisle linking the two rail stations and along the way passing through the most scenic and inspiring sections of these walks.
Here you can walk through the beauty of the Ribble Valley, through the rugged dales of Yorkshire to the thundering waterfalls of Teesdale and the sheer awe of encountering High Cup before then experiencing the solitary majesty of Cross Fell and the High Pennines. In it’s final stages the walk follows the sylvan splendour of the Tyne Valley before tramping in the footsteps of the Roman Legionnaires along Hadrian’s Wall towards Carlisle. This is a walk that quite simply contains the best of English walking.
