Stonethwaite, Borrowdale, Coast to Coast

Stonethwaite is a majestically beautiful location, equidistant from Rosthwaite and Seatoller, on the Coast to Coast route. The Stonethwaite Valley is usually accessed on the Cumbria Way, which is shared by the Coast to Coast walk as far as Smithymire Island, an area of loose stones in the Stonethwaite Beck. From here the Coast to Coast walk presses forward, uphill, following the Greenup Gill towards Lining Crag and Eagle Crag, whereas the Cumbria Way turns south along the Langstrath Valley.

The village of Stonethwaite lies on the opposite banks of the Stonethwaite Beck to the Cumbria Way and is hidden from view by vegetation. Stonethwaite Farm used to be owned by the monks at Fountains Abbey in Yorkshire from 1195, until a complaint was made by the monks of Furness to King Edward II. Instead of answering the complaint the King took possession of the farm and sold it back to Fountains Abbey for £2 a century later.

Two prominent landmarks to look out for are Lining Crag and Eagle Crag. Eagle Crag is prominent in the smaller, leftmost photo below. All 3 photos were taken while walking the Coast to Coast path in the Stonethwaite Valley.
