A series of interactive story walks based around fictional characters and local points of interest have been created along Copeland’s coast.
Writer Anja Phoenix has been working with Copeland Borough Council and The Outdoor Partnership over the last year to create a series of six ‘Tale Trails’ that run between Whitehaven and Millom.
Each walking trail is based around a story and accompanied by a colourful hand-drawn map. The stories have been written to encourage families to get outside and explore the natural environment, discover facts about the area, use their imagination and spend time outdoors.
Some of the routes within the Tale Trails are already popular walking destinations, while others explore lesser-known footpaths that could turn into new family favourites. A The first 3 trails Whitehaven, St Bees and Ravenglass are available free to download from http://taletrails.co.uk/
