Walking Festival - Extended Westfield Trail

A 'miles without stiles' route. Meet at the Rampside end of the route close to the Concle pub at 13:30 for a walk at a gentle pace. The walk will be led by a Cumbria County Council Countryside Ranger and Countryside Access volunteers. We will aim to take short stops to enjoy the scenery fauna and flora that we find along our route. The trail offers contrasting views; across the salt-marsh and mudflats to Piel and Walney islands: or to the industrial landscape of Barrow docks. The entire route is on a hard moderately smooth surface and suitable for wheelchairs and electric wheelchairs. The smooth surface has now been extended to the far end of Cavendish dock. For anyone in a wheelchair we will need to return from the dock the way we came. Otherwise it is possible to continue on foot into the centre of Barrow. Both options will be available on the day. Rampside to Cavendish dock and return is 8 km estimate this will take about 4 hours: Rampside to Barrow (Morrisons) one way is 6km. Parking is available at the Cumbria Wildlife Trust Foulney Island car park which is just off the causeway to Roa island.
