Cumbria Green Roads - route

These are the details from our recent trip, all done by Defenders, D3 with rock sliders and a shiny new D4, except where mentioned. Unfortunately I forgot to take photos of the start points but will try and describe them. Green Road details (OS Map extracts and route data sheets) can be found on Cumbria County Council Website here, some are one way, this will tell you

http://cumbria.gov.uk/roads-transport/publ...Routes.asp

I also used LRO March 13 to source information about a few different routes and have cross referenced the LRO route number and the council number where applicable.

My final source of information this time was Defender2 forum here

http://www.defender2.net/forum/topic25868.html

The way I chose to go was to print the OS map extracts A3 size, the using them and the data sheets, found the start points on Google maps on my I Pad. Once I had that it was fairly easy to mark the start points into my I Phone NavFree. I left it to the Sat Nav to take us between end and start points, it did seem to work quite well.

We stayed at the Windermere Manor hotel, good quality at a bargain price (£80 for a twin room B&B and 2 course dinner was £15 extra).

This was our intended route:

Route Day 1
Leave M6 at Junction 39 south on A6 signposted to Kendal

Sat Nav Fav 1 Breasthigh Road. U3278 os91 South West. we did this last time

Sat Nav Fav 2 Ford crossing for a photo call similar to LRO (for those with snorkels although not really deep this time) (south of Winster from LRO)

Sat Nav Fav 3 U5600 (from LRO March 13 number 1) os97 west

Sat Nav Fav 4 U5248 (from LRO March 13 number 2) os97 west

Sat Nav Fav 5 U5228 could add U5229 (from LRO March 13 number 3) os97 west

Sat Nav Fav 6 U5788 (from LRO March 13 number 11) os97 west we did miss this one in the end to get to the next one as it looked good

Sat Nav Fav 7 U5255 (from LRO March 13 number 12) on os 90 south east left the discoveries at the end and went out and back, what a great track with hairpins similar to San Francisco and the narrowest gap between a house and wall at the very end!

Route Day 2
Around the bottom of Windermere rather than the ferry

Sat Nav Fav 8 U5203 & U5204 (from LRO March 13 number 4) os97 west

Sat Nav Fav 9 U5213 South (from LRO March 13 number 5) os97 west

Sat Nav Fav 10 U5062 (from LRO March 13 number 6) os97 west

Sat Nav Fav 11 U5051– This one is Parkamoor, absolutely stunning high above Coniston Water, AJM took his discovery, very very tight between walls for a short period but was brilliant going up the steep rocky sections. Euan left his D4 at the start, I would have left mine as well! This single track took around an hour and a half out and 45 mins back, but we were taking our time.

Sat Nav Fav 12 U5050 (from LRO March 13 number 7) os97 west – we did this last time we missed this one due to time

Sat Nav Fav 13 U5015 (from LRO March 13 number Cool os97 west - this was quite good as well

Sat Nav Fav 14 U5001 – 4 High Tiberthwaite (from LRO March 13 number 9) os 90 South West – we did this last time we missed this one due to time

Sat Nav Fav 15 U5739 - (from LRO March 13 number 10) os 90 South West we missed this one due to time

Sat Nav Fav 16 U2236 & U3182 Old Coach Road we did this last time

Nice post, but the Cumbria council link isn't working.

Any chance you could post up the full link?

That is a cracking site, I'll certainly be making use of that next time I'm up there

Dave - that is just brilliant that you've taken the time to type all those out for others to use.

We went down to the Lake District last September any tried a couple of routes from this website - in particular U5003 from OS 89 SE - near Elterwater.

I'd only owned by D4 for 3 months or so and hadn't done any off road driving before, so ended up bottling it when it got just too narrow.

Tell me - do the Sat Nav Fav numbers refer to somewhere where the routes are already programmed into a sat nav & can be downloaded ??

Hope to bump into you soon - we're very local to you, Waterfoot !!

Dan

No the numbers are what I saved into my Nav Free, the text should explain how I put the numbers in.

We are at the top of the hill in West Acres, look out for a Grey D4 with forum stickers front and back.

Remeber the SCAMs (Scotland Central Area Meet) where a few of us go for a beer, chips and a chat, normally at Beefeater Uddingston, occasionally curry in town. Next one is 28th April, look in the events section.
