Black Combe Walking Festival at Millom Network Centre
The Black Combe Walking Festival is ten days of guided walks and talks at the gateway to the Western Lake District. From Wainwright's summits and valley explorations to coastal rambles and nature trails, our walks are led by local volunteers keen to share their enthusiasm and knowledge of this beautiful corner of Cumbria.
By evening, be gripped with exhilarating tales of climbing, mountaineering and exploration at the Kendal Mountain Tour, learn about our unique wildlife with a local amphibian expert and discover the hidden gems of the Lake District coast with the Shepherdess, Alison O'Neill. Enjoy our cosy pubs and B&Bs or watch the sunset over the Irish Sea, Duddon Estuary and Cumbria fells.
Black Combe is one of the Lake District' most iconic fells, its distinctive shape is often the first peak visible across Morecambe Bay from the M6. Between sea and mountains, from its summit you can see the kingdoms of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man on clear days. This area has inspired many of Lakelands great poets including William Wordsworth and Norman Nicholson.
An administration charge of £3 is made for each walk.
