With travelling back home after Christmas we didn’t have a great deal of time for a walk on Saturday so we got the 400 bus up to Silloth on the coast in West Cumbria to walk up to Grune Point and back. We had sunny spells and the wind was light but crikey it was cold on the coast. It must have been very close to freezing all day.
 
We had lovely views over the Solway Firth as we walked along the Cumbria Coastal Path
 
Criffel over the Solway Firth at our start in Silloth

 
The refurbished Victorian pagoda where we had our lunch

 
We’d only been walking for about 25 minutes but it was 12.15 and we were hungry  ;D
 
Criffel again now with more cloud over its top

 
On the promenade on the way to Skinburness. That is the Cote Lighthouse.

 
At Grune Point. We were a bit underwhelmed by it. The aerial shots I looked at before we went looked a bit more dramatic than it was on the ground.

 
This is either the World War 2 observation shelter at Grune Point or the Cumberland Machine-Gun Anti-Tank Rifle Emplacement depending on which web source you use.

 
The cairn on top was added as a memorial to four Silloth firemen who drowned while trying to rescue a wildfowler. Pity the shelter inside is used as a rubbish bin.
 
On the way back to Silloth

This is a pleasant 6 miler for those who don’t want too much excitement  ;)  We did enjoy the views of the Scottish coastline over the Solway Firth and after our last trip to the coast when it was all claggy and we saw nothing this walk more than made up for it. Thanks for the entertainment as usual Beefy  O0

was a nice walk not the usual excitement, but pleasant enough all the same,
good job there was almost no wind, otherwise it would have been too cold to be outside,  :coolsmiley:

Thanks for sharing the photos, April   :)   The views of the Solway Firth are atmospheric.  I had a stroll along the promenade at Silloth this summer and thought it seemed a pleasant place

hello all users. i am quas wenkis from mali.
Are you?
Are you though?
Are you really even a person?
And if you are, while I understand now nice Aprils TRs always are, why resurrect a thread from 4 years ago?
