Much of this walk is a delight. There is more road walking than usual because several tracks that pass through the low-level pleasing countryside, keeping you away from traffic, are deep in mud and should be avoided until next summer.

Millom, overlooked by bulky Black Combe, stands on the sandy estuary of the River Duddon. In its heyday huge numbers of migrants came across the sands to work in the largest haematite iron ore mine in the world, much of which was smelted abroad. Ships for this were built at Millom and in the late 19th Century 1,500 sailed from Hodbarrow pier.

Park in the ‘Fishermans’ car park on the A590, grid ref 315816 (where there are toilets), close to Barrow End Rocks on the OS Explorer OL 7 map. This lies at the north-bound end of the short dual carriageway; therefore approaching from Kendal is easy. From Ulverston you will need to wind round the south end of the dual carriageway – at Greenodd. The River Leven is about eight miles long. It flows out of the southern end of Windermere and is fast flowing from Newby Bridge to Haverthwaite, where this racing water powered numerous industries in the Leven Valley. It then meanders on to Greenodd where it is joined by the River Crake before flowing out into the northern reaches of Morecambe Bay.

From the A5086 look for the signs for Ennerdale Bridge. From this little village look for signs to the lake at Croasdale. Ignore any turnings until you see a sign for Broadmoor and Bowness Knott car park, which is set on the lake.

There are three Harter Fells in Cumbria, all providing excellent walking. This July ramble climbs to the summit of the Harter Fell that stands between and midway along the Duddon and Eskdale valleys – the loveliest Harter of them all in my view.
