The Crook O' Lune



OS grid reference :- SD521644

The Crook O Lune, situated near Caton, four miles from Lancaster, is a popular and highly attractive spot, where the River Lune meanders in a large curve through tree-lined banks, the view up the valley is superb, looking north east to the plateau of Ingleborough. The river passes under Penny Bridge and the bridge which once carried the Lancaster to Hellifield railway line, which now forms part of an extensive network of cycleways and footpaths.
