Not quite in the Lake District but close enough. This wasn't the start of a C2C, but a walk with the Wainwright Society as part of the 40th anniversary celebration of the Coast to Coast.

I slight change of tack for me this, but very local to my house and an enjoyable walk if you are ever kicking your heels in West Cumbria

Heading towards the steeper bit. The last time I climbed St Bees was before I started walking, and it seemed much easier now.
