Now the Yorkshire Dales NP extends as far as the M6 - including Mallerstang, Pendragon and the Lune Valley - my own route goes straight from Dales to Lake District (except for a narrow band at Tebay and the M6) as the LDNP has also been extended E to include Borrowdale (the lesser) - whether this will make any practical difference on the ground remains to be seen, but a few more users on some of those paths would be useful and we may get a final decision on the Cocklake bridleway dispute (where once again this year I kept to the road to avoid embarrassment...)
