Title: Kentmere Valley, Cumbria
Post by: flipflopnick on October 30, 2012, 02:43:43 pm
This route can be a mountain bike ride or a walk. There are three cache and dash GCs potentially.
 Le Tour series (http://coord.info/GC2C3HN) takes you on the classic MTB ride round Lower Kentmere valley. Whether finding these on foot or with hindrance of a bike, park in Staveley, in order to visit  Wilf's Cafe (http://www.wilfs-cafe.co.uk/) afterwards. Plenty of free parking throughout the village.

Route can be shortened and GCs found in any order. After #6 could return along valley bottom via  Kentmere. Lake View (http://coord.info/GC1DVX9). Leaving #7 - #9 for another day.
Another place to park would be near the entrance to mineral works and Kentmere Pottery. Marked as Wks and Sawmill Cottage on the map.
The whole route is a long day after 15+ caches.
