Dales Way Association


The Dales Way Association no longer sells Badges or Certificates.

However, we recognise that many people who have walked the Dales Way would like a souvenir of their achievement.

The Dales Way Association is delighted to announce that Hawkshead, family outdoor outfitters, is now offering a free certificate to Dales Way walkers, available in their shop just a short distance from the lake in Bowness where many  people finish their walk. Hawkshead are also giving 10p for every certificate claimed towards the upkeep of the route.

Hawkshead's Dales Way Certificate

The Bowness store is at 7 West End Buildings, Kendal Road, Bowness, LA23 3EE Tel: 015394 48694.

The shop is open Mon - Sat 9.00 - 5.30 & Sun 10.00 - 5.00.

Walkers who prefer to download a certificate can still do so from our website (see opposite).

See Hawkshead's own website here.



Although the Dales Way Association no longer prepares and posts out our own certificates, we do now have copies available for downloading, but only to members or those who have contacted us directly requesting a certificate. These are free.
