Lune Valley Ramble


27 km / 17 miles
The Lune Valley Ramble traces the course of the River Lunes lower reaches through some of the North West's finest lowland countryside. 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 throughout.

In August 2016 there was flood damage to parts of the Lune Valley Ramble between Arkholme and Newton (broken footbridge) and also between Whittington and Kirkby Lonsdale (dangerous blockage. These problems were reported to Lancashire County Council.

There is a downloadable booklet available from link below.
