The first stage of the Cumbria Way is characterised by varying terrain and scenery; walk through open fields, down quiet lanes, and along lakeside paths.

Begin at The Gill, perhaps paying a visit to the Laurel & Hardy Museum or Barrow Monument before you set out, you quickly leave Ulverston. A pleasant walk through farmland soon brings you to the Lake District National Park - the views across the Coniston Fells are splendid. A rough Lakeland path brings the chimneys of Coniston Hall into view, which marks days end.

Now mainly a base for outdoor enthusiasts, Coniston was originally a slate mining village. Famous for being the site of Donald Campbell's ill-fated world record water speed attempt, it is a lovely town and nearby Tarn Howes is one of the lakes most popular beauty spots.
