A. the route meanders through heather and woods, over stiles, past lakes, among sheep,- the modifier starting with "Starting.." correctly describes the route. Parallelism is maintained.Correct choice.

B. heather and woods dot the route which meanders over stiles, past lakes, among sheep,- Starting incorrectly modifying "heather and woods".

C. heather and woods dot the route that meanders over stiles, past lakes, among sheep,- Same error as B.

D. the meandering route through heather and woods, over stiles, past lakes, among sheep,- "Starting.." is modifying "the meandering" which is wrong. Absence of verb for the subject "the meandering route"

E. the route that meanders through heather and woods, over stiles, past lakes, among sheep- No verb present for the subject "the route".

Note:
"Starting in the west at St. Bees on the Irish Sea" should modify the route. Eliminate B,C,D.

A. the route meanders through heather and woods, over stiles, past lakes, among sheep,
Correct Choice.

E. the route that meanders through heather and woods, over stiles, past lakes, among sheep,- use of that creates SV pair error. NO VERB exists for the subject the route. Incorrect.
Also, My ears did not like the way the sentence sounded with the use of "that". :lol:
