Welcome...

The Inn Way... series of walking guide books by Mark Reid offer an enjoyable and unique approach to discovering the wonderful countryside of England’s North Country... as well as its wealth of hidden and unspoilt pubs.

The Inn Way - the Ultimate Pub Walks

Discover for yourself the rich and varied landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District, North York Moors, Northumberland and Peak District. Inspirational landscapes, beautiful villages, local food and drink, history and heritage, classic country pubs - it's what walking is all about.

Winter Backpacking Weekend

16/01/2017

Winter Backpacking Weekend
Coniston to Great Langdale, Lake District
January 2017

A weekend of great walks, wonderful pubs and good conversations!

On Saturday, we walked from Coniston to the Great Langdale campsite via Coppermines Valley, Hole Rake, Tilberthwaite, Little Langdale and Blea Tarn, in beautiful cold and sunny weather.

On Sunday, it was milder and damp and so we followed a low-level route back to Coniston via Slater's Bridge, Cathedral Cavern and Hodge Close.
