Walk Information

The route taken by the Kendal Limestone Way explores some of the remarkable and varied limestone landscapes of northern England. The Kendal Limestone Way is the name given by the author to a 63 mile (101km) long linear walk starting from the market town of Skipton in North Yorkshire and ending in the south Lake District town of Kendal. The walk can broadly be divided into three sections.

The greater part of the walk is through the limestone country of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The second, and shortest, section, crosses the lower Lune Valley between Lancashire and Cumbria. The final section visits the limestone area to the east of Morecambe Bay, the lower Kent Valley and the south-eastern tip of the Lake District National Park.

The route is almost entirely along field, woodland and riverside paths, canal towpaths, ancient tracks and bridleways and quiet country lanes.

Mobile Digital Mapping
Digital maps can be viewed on most modern smartphones using an appropriate app, downloaded from the app store associated with your device. Brigantes recommend that whichever app you use, it should support Ordnance Survey 1:25k or 1:50k scale maps. There are many apps to choose from, but the two main providers are Ordnance Survey and Memory Map.

Each provider’s app has its own benefits, but both provide all-important offline navigation, meaning your device does not need a mobile signal to work effectively on the trail.
