The Lune Valley Ramble
The Lune Valley Ramble is 16 1/2miles (26.5 km) in length and follows the course of the River Lune’s lower reaches through some of the finest lowland scenery the North West has to offer. Bounded by high moors, limestone hills and shadowed by the distant peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Leck Fell, the route offers excellent, easy walking and is signposted and waymarked.
The Crook o'Lune
The walk commences at the railway station in the historic city of Lancaster (SD471617), passing the famous beauty spot of the Crook o'Lune(SD521644) it finishes at the attractive market town of Kirkby Lonsdale in Cumbria (SD615783).
The Ramble traces the course of the old Lancaster to Wennington railway, closed in the 1960s and now a landscaped cyclepath as far as Bull Beck, Caton. A riverside park is being developed between Lancaster and Caton, with grants from the Millennium Fund, with new environmental sculptures along the route.
