Walna Scar Road repairs get underway
Bookmark and Share
A popular high-level fell route in the Lake District, which was damaged by floods in 2009, is on the way to being restored to its former glory after repair works began this week.

Walna Scar Road, which attracts cyclists, horse riders and those in walking trousers, was a victim of the floods that swept the region in 2009 and was subject to £5,000 worth of repairs after the natural disaster.

Now, a further £10,000 has been committed to reinvigorating another 600m, with Lake District National Park Authority (LDNPA) staff carrying out the repairs.

Dylan Jackman, Paths for the Public development officer, said that the planned improvements will be beneficial to those who like to lace up their walking boots and explore the region between Coniston and the Duddon Valley.

"The sub-soiling technique, which is used extensively within the Lake District, uses the hard-wearing material beneath the surface to create a hard-wearing path surface," he added.

Recently, the LDNPA concluded that Walna Scar Road is a restricted byway, meaning it is only suitable for those with walking gear, cyclists and horse riders.
