Walking in the Lune Valley and Howgills

Walking in the Lune Valley and Howgills

by: Dennis and Jan Kelsall
Set between the national parks of the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District, and the AONB's of Bowland, and Arnside and Silverdale, the 50 miles of the River Lune and its many tributaries take in some excellent walking country.

This guide offers a wide range of walks from the north-eastern corner of the Howgills to the edge of the Irish Sea below Lancaster. There are magnificent views from the empty hilltops, delightful natural woodlands full of wildlife, stunning secluded side valleys and open moorland vistas to be explored in Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire. And the walks are equally superb at any time of the year.

The 40 walks range in distance from 3 to 11 miles, providing something for all abilities. Each route is fully described and begins with panel of practical information and a walk summary and includes full colour OS 1:50,000 map extracts. There is also an introduction to the region and numerous colour photographs. The guide also includes a suggested 60-mile, 6-day itinerary for walking the River Lune from end to end.
