Kirkby Lonsdale Review

Sunday 21 April. This is my last post from what has been a most enjoyable holiday based in Kirkby Lonsdale. There has been some rain and at times strong winds but I’ve still managed to walk on twelve consecutive days totalling almost 89 miles with over 15,000ft of ascent. Each walk had its merits but for me, the day in the Howgills was perhaps the best as it gave a sense of adventure and was certainly a challenge.

I think that the “4 Ladies” enjoyed their walk and well done Josephine for walking on each day of her holiday. There were so many new born lambs in the fields and there was only one picture in mind to add to this post.

The following table is a statistical summary of each walk.
