    This stage explores some delightful wildlife spots on its journey from Workington to Maryport. It’s a 7.2-mile (11.6 km) stretch, making it one of the shorter sections of the Cumbria Coastal Way. For a longer walk, you could end at the village of Allonby, a further 5 miles (8 km) down the coast.

    After crossing the Derwent, I have included a short detour to Siddick Ponds Nature Reserve, a favourite of birdlife enthusiasts. Otherwise, follow the road back to the coast and head north east, past the village of Siddick.

    The next section is delightful, as you follow the railway along a section of raised beach. A cornucopia of colour is evident here in spring and summer, when all manner of wildflowers bloom, attracting butterflies, moths and ladybirds. The peace is only ever interrupted by a passing train.

    On the approach to Maryport you can enjoy views out to Criffel rising above the Galloway coast across the Solway Firth. Maryport has a fine harbour and a number of attractions and amenities. Accommodation is not as plentiful as one might imagine, so it is worth booking in advance.
