Alston Moor Walkers are Welcome

Alston Moor Walkers are Welcome has been part of the UK Walkers are Welcome Network since July 2013. One of its aims is to promote Alston Moor as a destination for walkers for both visitors and local people by providing information on local walks, the area in general and the facilities available. It also leads monthly walks and is involved with the Greg’s Hut Association, who maintain Greg’s Hut, an old lead-mining building high up on Cross Fell now a mountain bothy. A second aim is to work with the local council regarding the maintenance, improvement and signposting of the footpaths and facilities for walkers on Alston Moor. We would therefore welcome feedback from walkers on any walks they have undertaken in the area, in particular on any problems they may have encountered.
