Transactions of the Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian & Archaeological Society (CWAAS) 1884
The CWAAS has been going since 1866. In 1833 a paper was read at Kirkby Lonsdale entitled "the Guides over the Kent and Levens Sands, Morecambe Bay" by John Fell. It is probably the most comprehensive summary of the road across the sands, and well worth a read. A copy exists in the local reference section of Kendal Library.
