Amends to The Miller's Way ...

Amends to The Miller's WayDue to problems of access the following parts of the route as detailed in the official booklet of the route should be amended as follows:

Plumptonfoot to Wreay

  1. Delete the last line of paragraph 2 - i.e.'then through two metal field gates on the road' - the whole of paragraphs three and four and also half of the first line of paragraph five - i.e. 'Turn right along the road'

  2. Now, immediately following on from the sentence 'Where this hedge makes a right angled turn to the right, carry straight on across the field past a solitary tree' add in 'then through a metal field gate into a garden: bear right along a hedge through a gate into a rough field to cross a stream by a wooden footbridge. Aim for the field corner ahead up a bank and along a short lane onto a surfaced road at Petteril Green farm. In 200m turn left onto a minor road, then around two corners to Petterilgreen cottages. Here, go left onto a green lane down a bank to cross a narrow stream into a wood. Bear half left along a fence to pick up an old sunken road climbing to a metal field gate giving access to an open lonning. At the end go right'

  3. which will then run straight into 'then round a left hand corner, and in 600m left again at a sandstone cottage on a 'T' junction.'

Wreay to Carlisle

  1. Remove the last full sentence in paragraph 1 and replace with: "On entering the picnic area turn left to cross a new sandstone bridge, drop down to the river through a metal wicket gate on your right and go underneath the road to climb the bank and rejoin the footpath along the river."
