On the bank of the river Lune and famous for, among other things, its Devil's Bridge. This is a popular destination for us, but we usually visit in Summer, when the waters by Devil's Bridge are a magnet for both visitors and locals alike. With Fells to climb, and riverside paths to enjoy, the opportunity for good walking abound.
There will be three walks available with details circulated on the coach. They will range fromeasy to strenuous depending on the walk selected.
A Walk Leader - Dave Trembath - 10miles and 1550ft total ascent. Starting from Devil's Bridge parking area, we head northeast crossing the Wandales Lane Roman Road and up to Brownthwaite Pike. We then descend to make our way back to the coach via Langthwaite and Castweton.
B Walk Leader - John Slatcher- About 8 miles with no major inclines. Stating from Devils Bridge heading south. When this path leaves the river we take two country lanes to reach a farm. Walking the farm track north to another before going into Whittington. Then east to Lower Bigging before returning to Devil's Bridge.
C Walk Leader - Debbie Baxter - 6 miles with 413ft of ascent. Starting at Devils Bridge and heading towards Wood End, and then to the picturesque village of Whittington. Continuing along Coney Garth Lane towards the River Lune before joining the Lune Valley Ramble back to the bridge.
