Our rubbish first impressions

SIR – Last week my wife and I spent a great week walking in Cumbria, and one of our walks was from St Bees to Whitehaven.

not a welcome sight: The rubbish-strewn coastline

We were stunned when arriving on the outskirts (having followed the Cumbria Coastal Path for most of the way) to see piles of rubbish and old bricks etc, which gave a very poor first impression of the area.

Just further along the path (I’m guessing next to Kells looking at a map) the place was clearly a haunt for dog walkers as it stank of dog excrement and there was a great deal of it on the path.

I know this is hard to police, but this, in addition to the above, gave a very poor first impression of the area, which was a shame as, when we got to the main harbour area, we were very impressed.

My concern would be that lots of people from around the country use that walk, and it doesn’t give a great first impression.
