Extensive drainage and track restoration on the Old Coffin Route above Rydal and along Wain Lane and Mirk Lane bridleways between Troutbeck and Ambleside has been successfully completed.

Windermere - August 2017

Visitors to the popular Wain Lane area of Windermere can once again enjoy this well-trod walking route.

Scott Duncanson, Flood Recovery Ranger, said: “These paths were like streams for most of the year and largely impassable. The historical drainage problems affecting these routes have also been fixed to avoid future flooding, and finally the public will again have access to these routes.”

These two restored routes will enable tourists to gain direct access to the fells, and farmers and landowners to access their land and stock.
