A guidebook to 40 walks, from 3 to 11 miles, exploring the Lune Valley and Howgill Fells, some of the most unspoilt countryside in northwest England. Set between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales and two other AONBs, the walking is hugely rewarding, near the centres of Sedbergh, Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal and Lancaster.

Set between the national parks of the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District, and the AONBs 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 source of the river in the Howgill Fells to Glasson Dock, just below Lancaster, all along the Lune Valley, as well as a comfortable itinerary for walking the length of the river in 6 days.
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.
Walk 13 / Walk 14 individual routes are not possible presently due to the footbridge mentioned on page 84/ 86 being washed away in the floods of 2015.
An alternative is to combine both routes together until the footbridge it repaired. Works are due to start Sept/ Oct 2017 hopefully to be completed by the end of the year.
Walk 7 Birk Beck (page 60 in printed book)
The right of way at Gill Farm has recently been legally diverted. The new route (which is fully waymarked) now follows a more convenient and safer line around a paddock fence.
In place of "Walk past the front of the barn and adjoining house, leaving through a small metal gate into the rough pasture beyond" you should now follow the waymarks around the stock fence surrounding the farm, cross the field towards the obvious open gateway, into the rough pasture beyond.
The footpath mentioned on page 171 is closed. This is probably a temporary closure due to the building of a new bypass. Please see the map for an alternative until the route can be fully checked.
