The main reason for me building this website was that there was next to no information on the web for the Cumbria Way and what there was was scattered around quite a few sites.

On this page I have placed a few links Cumbria Way related as well as other links covering general walking websites.

If you want to suggest a link to go on this page or if you would like to have a link to your own website on here then e-mail me with details using the following email
