The group which created a long distance walk which starts in Cockermouth have launched a website to support it.

The 45km John Dalton Way was created by a group of walking friends known as the Nuclear Striders, most of whom have worked in the nuclear industry.

They launched a booklet in May last year, to mark the 250th anniversary of Dalton's birth, and unveiled a plaque at the start in Kings Arms Lane.

After selling 500 copies they had to print a new set of guidebooks this summer.

They have now created a website - www.johndaltonway.com.

Nuclear Strider Phil Campbell, of Papcastle, said: "It tells people about the book, the walk and John Dalton himself."
