A circular walk from the village of Bolton-le-Sands on the Lancashire Coast. The walking route follows the Lancashire Coast Way to reach neighbouring Carnforth and then returns along the towpath of the Lancaster Canal. Along the way, you will enjoy the coastal salt marshes and you will pass Carnforth rail station, famous as the setting for the 1945 film, Brief Encounter. The walk is relatively flat, with little in the way of gradient. NOTE: The initial stretch follows a coastal path through the salt marshes, with creeks and pools, so it is recommended to avoid high tide. You should follow all advice concerning tides displayed on noticeboards at the start of the walk. You will need to negotiate one stile plus gates and there are a couple of stretches of road walking that need care. Most of the route is livestock free, but you may come across livestock grazing on the marshes. Allow 3.5 hours.
