Introduction and background to the project
This project is the final section of a proposed off-road trail from Finsthwaite village to YMCA National Centre, Lakeside, along the south western shore of Windermere. Once complete, the whole trail, will link to The Swan Hotel and create a walking and cycle route along the western shore of England's largest lake.
The Southern Windermere Trail is being funded by ESIF (European Structural Investment Fund) and CLEP (Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership).
The aim of this project is to provide visitors a route that is predominately traffic free, connecting the key visitor attractions in the Southern Windermere Basin and encouraging them to use sustainable transport rather than use their car for short hop journeys between destinations. The target is to reduce carbon emissions by 26 tonnes within the first three years of project completion and to create 76 jobs in the local area.
In order to satisfy funding requirements, the entire project must be delivered by 31st March 2022.
