Ruskin's View

Ruskin’s View

The river Lune flows gently southwards from Kirkby Lonsdale on its journey to the sea near Lancaster. A very pleasant drive or cycle ride follows the A683 passing through Melling, Hornby and Claughton (with perhaps a stop at The Highwayman Inn at Burrow) to the picturesque Crook of Lune. Cross the river and return to Kirkby Lonsdale via Gressingham, Arkholme and Whittington.

Further south the ancient city of Lancaster provides a fascinating day out with its castle, cathedral, maritime museum and much more.
