Welcome to Cumbria LDWA Group

We are a small group numerically but are favoured by easy access to vast areas of magnificent countryside. Most of the members live in or around Carlisle, Keswick and Penrith so our walks usually feature the Lake District, Eden Valley Northern Pennines and Border Country.Currently we have a monthly social walk (see Future Events) at which LDWA members and their guests are guaranteed to receive a friendly welcome. We are also pleased to welcome any non-LDWA members interested in learning more about us and the Association. It is suggested that anyone wishing to join one of our walks should contact the Walk Leader or Walks Secretary before the walk to confirm details.A short report on each walk together with any appropriate pictures will be published in Latest News.

Social walks are back!  'Tales of the Riverbank II' took place on Sunday 16th August and was our first walk since the national lockdown in March made group walks no longer possible. See the report and photographs via the link below.  We are now pleased to report that we are resuming our monthly social walks programme.  If you would like to join us, please contact the leader in advance of the walk for further details.  We are also on Facebook; look our for the Cumbria LDWA page.

Our September walk, 'Fells Alive!' Tea at HBG Mk 5 took place on Sunday 6th September but sadly without the tea and cakes at the end!  We are hopeful of resuming this tradition in 2021!
