It is a varied walk that takes in the towpath of the now defunct part of the Lancaster Canal(but in noway detracts from its appeal) and the rugged limestone of Hutton Roof Crags. Burton is an attractive village with a long history, a charter for a market was granted by Charles II in 1661. The Lancaster to Kendal turnpike passed through the village. On the canal, boats carried coal northwards and limestone southwards: so the canal was nicknamed 'The Black and White Canal'. Hutton Roof Crags deserve more than a fleeting visit.There are so many variations in this compact area that many visits would be needed to get to know it.
