Section 1, Stage 3: Page 60
The Cumbria Coastal Way in the Barrow area is affected by works at Barrow Waste water Treatment Works. However, recent good work by Barrow Borough Council has added to the amenity of the route. Better views of the town's maritime influences are obtained.
from the south when arriving at the corner of Salthouse Pool (SD222683) turn left along the sea wall and with Cavendish Dock to your right.
At the end of the dock (SD210678) go to join the road which you follow to the right.
After some 500 metres there is a signpost on your right where a promenade path alongside Buccleugh Dock takes you to the High Level Bridge by the superstore and where you can go to join the original route.

During the November 2009 floods the bridge over the Derwent was damaged. It will shortly be demolished. From the railway station go north along the A597, cross the Derwent by the temporary road bridge, and then go down to join the route described in the book.
Stage 10 Whithaven to Workington
Moresby Hall, shown in a photograph on this page, now operates as a country guest house. Information can be found on their website www.moresbyhall.co.uk.
The ongoing work on upgrading of the A74 and M6 is causing difficulty for the bus stop at Metal Bridge. The operators of service 79 are not able to give advice about the bus stopping here as the situation is changing daily.
Once the construction has been completed it is planned that the bus will continue to stop near Metal Bridge on the new all-purpose road adjacent to the new M6.
There is no public access across the bridge at the present owing to the re-decking of metal bridge. Walkers would have to use the bus service to get to Gretna while cyclists are routed through Longtown. When I spoke to the Highways Agency they told me that on completion of the works access for pedestrians/cyclists will be available along the support road.
If you intend to catch the small passenger ferry that runs from Roa Island (the mainland) to Piel Island. The contact telephone numbers are 07516 453784 or 07798 794550. The ferry normally runs after 11am in summer or on a fine day.
Stage 9: Page 132
The Coastal Path has now been diverted to the seaward side of Birkhams Quarry. The route is clear to follow.
Stage 8: Seascale to St Bees
The route of the Way is currently blocked by construction work just north of Sellafield railway station. The operators of the site tell us they have provided diversion signs which take you slightly inland from the route in the book. This may add 1-1.5 km onto your route. It is likely the works will continue until autumn 2008.
Saltom Pit pages 134/135
Sea defence work coupled with an enhanced access path and stabilised buildings have now made this site more easily accessible.
The route shown on page 103 and described on page 107 along the northern bank of the River Esk below Muncaster Castle is no longer available. Walkers are recommended to continue along the A595 until the rear entry to Muncaster castle is reached (SD103966). From here a public footpath goes through the castle grounds and over to Newton Farm and down to Ravenglass. The original route can be rejoined if you turn south at Newton Farm. The ford opposite Hall Waberthwaite Church is not advised and the ford over the Esk alongside the railway bridge needs a great deal of caution if you elect to use this public footpath.
