  13. Ennerdale Bridge – The Cloggers
  14. St. Bees – Outrigg House

The sharp eyed amongst you will have spotted that I’ve changed my Ennerdale Bridge accommodation. I had semi-booked a place well outside the village, a place where the landlady would collect from Ennerdale and drop you back off in the morning. But I’d really wanted to stay in the village. I finally managed to get in touch with The Cloggers B&B, who’d been away on holiday and I’ve now secured a single room there instead. Much more convenient and no more expensive.

Over the next few days I’ll start to scribble some of my route options into the blog – I’m planning on as few traditional Wainwright days as possible. With lots of nice route options for the Lakes and the Dales.

    Jane, glad you found my journal useful, I tried to include all the elements that I would have found useful in other journals, especially as it was my first long path. I also found walking to be incredibly addictive, to the point that I can almost count on the fingers of one hand the number of Saturday walks I’ve missed over the past few years. I bet once you’ve walked the C2C you’ll be looking for another walk the following year too 🙂

    You can send me your planned itinerary by email if you don’t want it broadcast on here and we’ll see where out routes cross and try and arrange a meet. I’m already meeting another reader near Sunbiggin Tarn for a spot of lunch on the 19th June. My email addres is stuart @ walkingplaces . co . uk – just remove the spaces obviously 🙂

    Where are you based? If I know of any walks locally I’ll let you know.

    Hi – found your site while researching for my C2C 2011 walk – the first walk which I have just started to announce to friends and family!!! I am now in training and grateful for the time you must have spent sharing experience…

    I am setting out from St.Bees on 15th June 2011 so we may cross paths around the 19/20th and if it happens to be near a pub – I will buy you a pint as your site has given me such insight and great tips…

    New to walking I am building up with 1-2mile walks each evening with longer walks at weekends and finding it quiet an experience! Having posted my charity page and got my first few donations I am now committed…. so here goes and cant help thinking I have found a new hobby

    I’ll check back over the next few months to see your new posts – but any weekend walks that you would recommend as good training would be welcomed!
