X112 bus walk – Saturday 17 February

Cark to Grange-over-Sands using the train

 

09.30 bus from Coniston (or somewhere along the route) to Ulverston then we walk a short distance to the railway station.

10.28 train from Ulverston towards Grange-over-Sands.  The walk is divided into three sections: the first is footpaths (pretty but muddy – walking boots are needed), the second is roads (sorry – unavoidable) and the last section is walking along the prom (delightful and easy).  The full walk is 8 km (5 miles) getting off at Cark and walking to Grange-over-Sands.  If you get off at Kent’s Bank and do the last section only (trainers OK), it is just 3 km (1 ¾ miles).

We’ll have a late lunch at one of the cafés in Grange, so bring coffee and a snack for a stop on the way.  We’ll catch the 14.45 train from Grange back to Ulverston, and the 15.50 bus back to Coniston arriving around 16.30.

Cost of return train fare:   £3.05 with railcard, £4.60 without.   The Beach Hut Gallery in Kent’s Bank is worth a visit on the way and the duck pond in Grange has some rather exotic ducks so we’ll wander round this at the end if time.
