The CSJ has a small but flourishing Regional Group in Cumbria, which formed during lockdown, and has rapidly developed into a friendly and active group.  After an initial walk in 2020, the group had three walks together in 2021, continued its programme in 2022, 2023 and into 2024. The group holds regular zoom meetings throughout the year. It is led by David Last who, for further information, can be contacted here:  d[email protected] 

Anyone with an interest in the Camino, including pilgrims past, present and future, are all very welcome to join us.  

Latest updates/ upcoming events:

Some of us joined the John Bradburne Memorial Society for their annual pilgrimage walk to the summit of Cross Fell on June 8th, which was very enjoyable although there was a strong wind  and it was very cold on the top! Next year the walk will be on Saturday July 5th, and it would be lovely to see more CSJ members there.

We are having a social get together in Uldale, near Caldbeck, on St James' Day, Thursday July 25th, and walk on Saturday August 24th and another get together before Christmas, again in Uldale, which is quite central for us all.

The weather here over Spring and early Summer has been pretty awful, with lots of rain and is still cold, but hopefully it will soon improve.

If anyone wants to be involved in any of our forthcoming events then please  contact David Last on [email protected] for further details.
