We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

  1. Complete the survey training.

I decided not to risk walking this route as the Google Street View shows that where the footpath crosses the busy, fast A591, it looks quite dangerous.

Lovely route. Slight confusion in Kirby House Farm, where farmer said he intended to ask National Park to improve signs between farm buildings.
Only suggestion for improvement is to go direct from Kendal via Kettlewell to Cunswick. This would avoid the complications of the path through the wood and the golf course. Also safer way to cross the dual carriageway. So overall a “Maybe” because of the points in this para, but best to see what others say.

    Hi AwayO. I understand what you mean about the dual carriageway crossing, even if it is an official public right of way, I I know the woods and golf course can be fiddly. I would like to try to improve the route, but there are several Cunswicks and no Kettlewells as far as I can make out. If you can be a bit more specific I might be able to help.

    Hi Mary If you find the golf course on an OS map of Kendal, then Kettlewell Crag is North of the course. NW of the crag is Helsfell Nab, near which there is a bridge over the dual carriageway. From the bridge you can continue NW towards Cunswick Fell. Bend south to rejoin your route.
    There are two paths running parallel from the road in Kendal that lead to Helsfell Nab. The more Northern one avoids crossing the golf course but is a little further.
    Hope that helps.
