River Lune Walk

Approx 4.8 miles (7.7km).

This gentle amble is the perfect way to start exploring the beauty of the Lune Valley. Starting at Devil’s Bridge this 3-hour circular walk follows the course of the River Lune as it flows south to Lancaster and the sea. The views are superb open panoramas from Barbondale to Ingleborough. Along the way, you can check out the ancient church of St Michael the Archangel in Whittington, which dates to 1200 AD, standing on the site of a Norman Motte and Bailey castle. The village was also home to William Sturgeon the pioneering inventor of the electromagnetic motor…This walk is very doable, but in our view, it’s worth making a day of it and heading out with a picnic sitting by the river along the way and taking in the views.
