Kendal to Lancaster Canal Walk

45 km / 28 miles

Cumbria, Lancashire
A canal walk connecting Kendal with Lancaster, initially urban in Kendal the route becomes peaceful and rural, passing through or close to a series of villages and later towns until it finally crosses the River Lune to make its way into the centre of Lancaster. The canal can be followed with minor diversions where motorways cross. In Lancashire the towpath is a permissive path and in Cumbria a right of way. The route was developed by Kendal Ramblers.

The leaflet is provided as a free downloadable pdf, link below, and is also on the Lancaster Ramblers and Kendal Ramblers websites.
