Route Info

There will be 2 cabinets (“Head End’s”), one at Selside and the other at Grayrigg. For most properties, those that are West of the Mint (inc Mealbank and those to the South & West is Mealbank) will look at the Selside Head End (the big green box) and those the the East of the Mint will look at the Grayrigg Head End. This builds in safety of your connection in case of another hugh storm like Desmond. A few properties in Docker will look at the New Hutton Head End before this links to Grayrigg. New Hutton Route 5 will hopefully also link to Selside Route 5.

SEHE = Selside Head End

Route 1 = Heads to Watchgate and splits either side of the A6 following it North. This is now complete to watchgate and down to Garnet Bridge.

Route 2 = splits off route 1 and is Longsleddale including Garnet Bridge along the way, up the valley it splits again in 2 and each line serves either side of the valley. Nov 18 – Digging is underway here and Tony and his team are approaching over half way up the SW side of the valley (Beach Hill).  5th Dec – Tony and his team have finished the SW side and are approaching the village hall heading out of the valley. 

Route 3 = splits off route 1 at Crake Hall and aims towards Whinfell through Low Biggers Bank but before that it splits to Selside school and along and up to Kit Crag. Complete through to Browfoot. Priority is connecting the school. 

Route 4 = Patton. Nov 18- way Leaves still needed but we have a viable route. 5th Dec – 1 way leave for 2 fields left then route is green. 

Route 5 = Mealbank East via Patton Hall then heading to connect with Old Hutton via Paddy’s Lane. 5th Dec – way leaves stop after Mealbank

Route 6 = Down to Kiln Croft, Mealbank West, South to Beck Mills, Low Groves then West to Oakbank and B4Kent

Route 7 = Otterbank and Garth Row and beyond. Way Leaves still needed. We have a potential alternative route but it will land lock people east of A6. 


GRHE = Grayrigg Head End. Way Leaves still needed.

Route 1 = East of Grayrigg City. Way Leaves still needed.

Route 2 = Whinfell linking with SE Route 3 via Topthorn. Essentially all that are East of the Mint and North of the A685. Way Leaves still needed. 5th Dec – 2 more bayleaves arrived recently, we are getting there. 

Route 3 = splits off route 1 and supplies properties South of the train line in Lambrigg. Way Leaves still needed. 5th Dec – ownership map arrived with a verbal yes to way leave, 1 more to go and this route is viable. 

Route 4 = South West of Grayrigg Linking to Docker (some of Docker feeds from New Hutton so green to dig see below)


NHHE = New Hutton Head End

This is an extension to the B4SW work, the properties in Most of Docker will look at the New Hutton Head End. 

NH Route 4 = Some of Docker before this route links with the GRHE Route 4. Way Leaves still needed. However we can link 90%.
