With a few days spare at the beginning of March 2020 I headed to Cumbria with the intention of walking between some of the Railway Stations on the Cumbrian Coast Line and, at the same time ‘ticking-off’ a few more stations on the mission to visit every station in the UK.  At the end of the break I had walked 22.2 miles (boots on!) and started or ended a rail journey at 44 railway stations; 43 of which I had never visited before.  Not bad for 5 days!
