Buckabank

















Buckabank


Considered by some to be merely a part of Dalston, Buckabank and it’s twin settlement of Bridge End on the west side of the River Caldew are almost entirely residential and mark the point at which The Cumbria Way begins to lose it’s rural feel and to develop a more urban aspect


Nearby Rose Castle, a fortified house extended and altered in the 19th century and Grade I listed by English Heritage, has been the palace of the Bishops of Carlisle from 1230 to 2009


Some reminders of the previous industrial past of Buckabank are the two former mills passed by walkers on The Cumbria Way


Apart from a short section north of Cummersdale, The Cumbria Way follows surfaced paths from here to Carlisle
