  • The walk is 8 miles and will take approximately 3 to 4 hours to complete (there will be a tractor and trailer following for anyone who needs it along the way).
  • The walk starts at The Promenade, Arnside and finishes at Kents Bank Train Station (please note this may change due to weather conditions)
