Monday 15 April. It was bright but very breezy today as I was joined by the full compliment of “4 ladies” for and 8¾ mile walk with 650ft of ascent. Most of this was in a single climb to a trig point (400ft) on Sellet Bank that we could have avoided had I been paying more attention to the map and route finding.
Setting off from my caravan site we toured Kirkby Lonsdale before heading off across the fields and a stream bed which brought us to the village of Whittington. Another mile or so brought us to the banks of the River Lune which we then followed upstream for 2½ miles back to the Devil’s Bridge at Kirkby Lonsdale and my caravan a ¼ mile or so further on.
