A different View, Walking the Cumbrian Coastal path in reverse!

A different view...

Walking the Whitehaven to St Bees Coastal Path in reverse!

Or, St Bees to Whitehaven, Walking the Coastal Path…

My Partner and myself walk this path at least twice a year and always from the Whitehaven end but for a change we thought we’d walk it the other way around, photographically speaking for me, it was like a whole new journey!

Most of the views I recorded this time around I have previously missed, just because I was going the other way

So onward!

From the promenade join the Cumbria Coastal Way and follow it to cross the footbridge over Rottington Beck. The path climbs above the cliffs to South Head.

Cross the small stream and continue following the Cumbria Coastal Way as it climbs along the cliff top path to North Head, as a small diversion you can visit the lighthouse that tops the North Head, it’s only a couple of hundred yards added to your journey…

Continue on the path and follow it down to Fleswick Bay...

Beyond North Head the cliffs swing north east and the path follows them along an undulating course until it descends at Saltom Bay.

Continue to follow the Cumbria Coastal Path past South Beach to Whitehaven Harbour. Passing the Haig pit Museum and Saltom undersea Mine which can be viewed from the Cliff Top.

Great walk on a fine day, and the moral is? If you want something to look different view it the other way around!

Cheers Jules...
