I was hoping that this would be the last trip to this area as I had planned to cover the the remaining distance of 18 miles in Cumbria that I had not previously walked or biked. In the event, I failed due to the heat, stomach aches and losing time threading my way along Duddon Sands. Having said that, I intend to be back, probably during the Autumn or Winter to polish off the remaining 5 miles and possibly take in some other attraction.
The journey by train to Cumbria was exactly the same as the trip last month except that I left the train at Green Road station and started to walk at 1035. Before setting out, I made the decision to walk through as many villages as possible, rather than keep strictly to the Cumbria Coast Path which can be a little tedious at time and, in any case is incomplete in places.
