Dr Beeching maybe something of an enemy of car-free walking, but his closure of many branch lines has at least left some disused railway lines, which now make for fine walks. This one, between Keswick and Threlkeld, came to my attention from the somewhat strange source of Stuart Maconie's book on Middle England. But the man knows his stuff - it's a great low-level walk in the Lakes, passing along the River Greta to Threlkeld, with a choice of fine pubs. The return skirts beneath the peaks of Blencathra and Lonscale Fell, with Skiddaw behind.
