Top 10 - Walks around our district

1. Morecambe Bay Cross Bay Walk - A great walk across the sands is a must for any walking enthusiast. (Crossing is only possible at low tides and with the leadership of a professional guide.)
2. Lunesdale Walk - A 3 day waymarked walk which travels through the rich landscapes of Lancashire's Lune Valley.
3. Lune Valley Ramble - The One Day Ramble links the City of Lancaster with the market town of Kirkby Lonsdale and traces the course of the River Lune's lower reaches through some of the North West's finest lowland countryside.
4. Carnforth Canal Walks - Explores the glorious countryside near the Lancaster Canal around the Market Town of Carnforth.
5. Clougha Pike Ascent - On Lancaster's doorstep and rewards with a sense of space, a hint of the wild and a magnificent view.
6. A walk around Silverdale - This area is an intricate patchwork of limestone ridges and crags, woodland, meadows, wetlands, salt marsh and more, with one of the richest ranges of flora in the country. The diversity is astonishing, and this walk takes in a fair sample of it.
7. Lancaster & the Lune - It's part of Lancaster's charm that it remains a compact city, enjoying close contact with surrounding countryside. This easy walk takes full advantage, moving from the bustle of the city centre to the leisurely pace of the canal and on to the wide open spaces of the Lune Estuary.
8. Lancaster to Carnforth along the Canal - Enjoy the vast panoramas of Morecambe Bay. Being a one-way walk it feels more like a real journey, and there's no lack of choice for the return leg, including trains, buses and, more unusually, the Waterbus service on the Lancaster Canal.
9. A City Walk around Lancaster - The best way to explore Lancaster is on foot with much of its history encapsulated within its fine buildings.
10. A walk along Morecambe Promenade - Set off westwards from the town and down to the pretty village of Heysham, where the ruins of St Patrick's Chapel stands upon the mysterious and magical headland hidden beyond St Peter's Church.

Details of the walks are available in your apartment.
