Dalton (CP8)

Broughton Road

  • Miles to go: 2.99

The ancient capital of Furness makes for the last – and much appreciated stop. The checkpoint is opposite the old fire station (now houses) in a grassy space on the edge of the town. There is limited car parking in this area.

  • Drinks – at Checkpoint
  • First Aid – at Checkpoint
  • Toilets – 200m past the Checkpoint at Tudor Square

Walkers who reach Dalton after 8:30pm will be stopped at this point, for their own protection, and to safeguard the volunteer marshals further down the route. This is non-negotiable. Transport will be provided to the finish.

Proceed through Dalton, turning right at Tudor Square, and then turning left at the White Horse Inn junction. Keep to the left-hand pavement as you walk down the hill, and continue on the left-hand pavement all the way to the Abbey House Hotel, until directed by police and/or marshals to cross Abbey Road. The last mile can be the toughest of them all. No stopping now though.

  • Drinks - Brown Cow
  • Toilets - Brown Cow
  • Drinks - Stone Trough, Abbey Road

INTERESTING FACT: One of Dalton's most famous sons was George Romney, who was a talented 18th century high-society portrait painter. He was also a keen scientist, and spent much time practising the art of alchemy (aiming to turn cheap base metals into valuable metals such as gold) with his friend Williamson, a Dalton watchmaker. However, this pursuit came to an abrupt halt when they accidentally blew up their furnace.
