Help connect Staveley

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Staveley’s Slow Ways.

This was a great walk, very nice views especially on the Dales Way, a great addition. Great walk and mainly off the road....

This route follows the River Kent most of the way and what a superb route it is, following the Dales Way alongside the river for a good length of the route....

An excellent walk over the low fells to the south of the main road between these two places....

Nearer to Kendal it is necessarily less pleasant but keep an eye out for the otters (very) occasionally seen along the river bank. I agree it is more enjoyable to follow the river/Dales Way between Staveley and Cowan Head...

We walked it from Staveley to Windermere, which has the advantage of great views of the higher Lake District fells....

From the outskirts of Burneside I took the path across the field, which then runs paralell to the railway line before entering a small housing estate, crosses the line, heading on streets for a little before, doubling back under the railway bridge to then take the riverside path into Kendal. I suggested as a third alternative to the 2 routes already linking Staveley and Kendal but my version (mainly off-road) doesn't seem to have been uploaded on the website yet....

Walk this route

Very nice walk, a bit of care in navigation needed, potential for a bit of mud and unevenness underfoot in some places. One small tweak - at the Staveley end of the walk it makes sense to cross the footbridge with green railings (see my 3rd photo), rather that take the southeast-then-northwest diversion round it....

The route leaves Staveley on a path slightly separated from the road and next to the River Kent. It leaves the road just before the level crossing and follows the Dales Way alongside the river to Cowan Head....

The problem section is from Staveley to Cowan Head, which takes the footpath from the road out of Staveley (just before the railway crossing) and navigates via Cragg Farm. Finally, the descent to Cowan Head is again on an overgrown / underused path....
