walk summary

This delightful short walk starts off at the spectacular Devil’s Bridge, before you follow the picturesque River Lune. After a short while you climb up to the wonderful viewpoint of Ruskin’s View, which was described by John Ruskin in 1875 as ‘one of the loveliest views in England, therefore in the world’. The view was also painted by Turner in 1822.


You then walk up through some lovely woodland and traditional farmland up to Home Farm, which has an ideally situated Old Forge Tea and Coffee house. You then return back to the market town of Kirkby Lonsdale which gives you a good opportunity to visit St Mary’s the Virgin Church on the way, which dates back to 1705.


From here it is a short stroll back to your car on a wonderful traffic free lane.


It is an interesting walk away from the crowds of the Lake District.
