The dis-used railway line path remains closed at two places due to bridges being washed away. From the planning applications seen on the pathways they are nearing the start of the reinstatement.

Staying in a nearby holiday villiage we used this path to walk into town. It was very pleasant with birds and dog walkers.

Instead of following the busy road into town, the old railway footpath makes for a pleasant, casual stroll in a green, quiet environment.

A leisurely walk on a wide path formed by former railway track with lots of greenery, crossing the river. Lots of dog walkers and locals. A great place to stroll with an ice cream cone

Visited this as part of Keswick Park Run. Excellent long up and down run. Brilliant little track and well worth a visit.

Beautiful scenery and all pretty flat for those who don't have the energy for the mountains. The tracks follow the river upstream, beautiful views wildlife and very peaceful. The path starts at the old railway station which is right next to the Keswick swimming pool.

The old Railway line offers a good stroll away from main roads and buildings. It is a shame that Storm Desmond caused damage to so many bridges that the walk is shorter than it could be. You can enjoy the scenery change from urban to...More

We managed to located this old railway walk a short distance from the A66. We parked in a back street and walked the short distance following the well positioned signposts. We began behind the hotel by the old Keswick station and walked about a mile...More

Sorry, the path is not paved. The good news is that it should be OK for a bike with stabilisers. The path is both flat and even and the surface is well compacted with occasional stretches of gravel. My wife's mobility... More

You can use a wheel chair on some of the route starting from the old railway station but you might want to confirm at the Keswick tourist office.
