Cumbria Way

Mile 42

Keswick

Most Cumbria Way walkers spend a night in Keswick, although those who plan to end their walk here could, with an early start from Borrowdale, catch an afternoon bus from Keswick to the train station at Windermere or Penrith. A night in Keswick in our view provides a satisfying end to the tour. Once a small market town, which obtained its charter in 1276, it still centres on the historic market square and Moot Hall, which now houses an excellent information centre. Many of the older buildings are built of the locally quarried dark green volcanic slate rock. Another local mineral is graphite, which gave rise to Keswick's former pencil-making industry. For those who have time to spare there are many interesting walks in the vicinity: for instance along the eastern shore of the lake, or to the neolithic Castlerigg Stone Circle.
