About the trail

This alternative to Wainwright's classic route offers a gentler walk across the north of England from coast to coast. The route runs across the country from Arnside on the shores of Morecambe Bay to Saltburn-by-the-Sea by the North Sea. It passes through remarkable scenery, including limestone hills and ancient woodland in the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the valleys and villages of the Yorkshire Dales and the heathery hills and green dales of the North York Moors.

The famous Ribblehead Viaduct can be seen along this trail, along with many other architectural and historical wonders to enjoy, including Bolton Castle and England’s oldest theatre.
