This diversion was introduced in 2014 to make it easy for walkers passing through the farm at Burton House, on the A6 near Kendal.
The original route did not follow the definitive right of way and crossed a stream at a very muddy stile.
The new route is well waymarked and should offer no difficultieas at all.
As you leave the A6 and walk up the access lane to Burton House, a new walker's gate on the left leads onto a parallel farmers track, which bypasses the farm buildings to the east and south.
The track then leads down the filed to cross the stream at a gate, then bears left (SW) alongside the stream to another gate where the original path is rejoined.
