 Cumbria Walks

Cumberland and Westmorland were merged into Cumbria in the local authority shake up of 1974, along with parts of the West Riding of Yorkshire and Lancashire. Its annexation of bits of Yorkshire also brought with it parts of the Yorkshire Dales. To many, Cumbria is synonymous with the Lake District.

The cross boundary issues mean some walks can be said to start in either Cumbria or the Yorkshire Dales so on this site these are listed under both areas.

Cumbria has a very mixed economy including shipbuilding, other industry, farming and tourism, tourism being its largest earner. The general demise of industry means it has some fairly poor areas.
