Workington

Workington heading for Cockermouth

The route starts from the lighthouse. You get there by turning down Curwen Road on the industrial estate. From the lighthouse turn left onto the railway bridge just by the sailing club, then (briefly) fol ow the path by the side of the river Derwent.

Bear left at the next railway bridge, crossing the line at the road junction, where you turn right. At the main road go right and under the sandstone bridge where you meet the walkway/cycle path which then bears left, heading out of the industrial part of Workington past the lagoon and up through Seaton.

Follow the route through Camerton, briefly joining the river again, skirting Broughton Moor and on through Great Broughton and Papcastle, once the site of a Roman fort. You are now on the edge of Cockermouth.
