Stage 5

Bell Bridge over the River Caldew south of Carlisle collapsed following the floods of December 2015 and will remain closed for a extended period of time.


The latest reprint shows the temporary diversion but for those who have the first edition do not cross the river bridge ar Sebergham (south of Bell Bridge) but follow the country lane towards Bell Bridge, picking up the route on the nearside of it or, if that is closed for safety reasons continue along road for 350m and then cut across to riverside path.


Also on Stage 5: There has been a landslide at Dentonside Wood north east of  Caldbeck.For more info visit: http://www.ramblers.org.uk/go-walking/group-finder/areas/lake-district/the-cumbria-way.aspx
