Short Walks

Explore Ulverston with a beermat. The walks don’t all pass by a pub, but with a little creativity, a method can almost always be found to incorporate a stop for liquid refreshments. This beautiful beermat set of four interlocking beermats was designed by Andrew Nicholaides in 2015 for the Ulverston Brewing Company, for distribution to Lake District pubs. It was originally published on the Visit Ulverston tourist information website, along with a set of walk leaflets produced by Ulverston Community Partnership.
