Summary: The Cistercian Way is a walking route along the paths, tracks and byways of South Cumbria. The walk which starts at the northern shores of Morecambe Bay travels via woodlands to Hampsfell and Cartmel Priory to Cark and Holker Hall. The route then continues over the sands of the Leven Estuary, but this is dangerous and should only be attempted with the recognised Sand Pilot. Otherwise the train should be caught to Ulverston where the Way continues by Dalton to Furness Abbey and the coast. (Source: LDWA) Towns, villages and significant geographical locations passed on the course of the Cistercian Way include Eggerslack Wood, Hampsfell, Cartmel, Cark, Cartmel Sands, Dragley Beck, Ulverston, Swarthmoor Hall, Croftlands, Great Urswick, Little Urswick, Dalton-in-Furness, Furness Abbey, Boa Bridge, Leece and Rampside before ending on the Roa Island peninsula.
