Walk at Kirkby Lonsdale

March 8, 2018

A short walk at Kirkby Lonsdale to explores this market town. It heads for Devil’s Bridge before returning along a nice section of the River Lune. Finally the Radical Steps return you to town.

The Walk

Only recently have I been stopping and exploring the little market town of Kirkby Lonsdale with its quirky shops, narrow streets and fine central market place. I like it and I particularly like the newly improved path that runs along the River Lune (suitable for push chairs and wheelchairs) from Devils Bridge. Of course the steep Radical steps defy many an able bodied at this stage but the rewarding view near the church was once a favourite of no less than John Ruskin.

This walk at Kirkby Lonsdale is a short walk, but can be extended a little by following the Lune further north from Ruskins viewpoint, but even if you are only passing enroute up the A65 it is worth stopping at Devils Bridge, doing the walk and enjoying a butty.


Stay for a mini break in Kirkby Lonsdale instead of just passing, there are some good walks (see below) and the town really does have a good buzz.

The path to Devil’s Bridge leaves at the east end of the market place down a cobbled lane.
