A circular pub walk from The Highwayman in Nether Burrow, near Kirkby Lonsdale in Lancashire. The Highwayman retains much of its original charm with flagged stone floors and open fires, an ideal place for post-walk refreshments. The route is a remarkably scenic walk through the surrounding countryside, with outstanding views of Ingleborough, one of the Three Peaks of Yorkshire. The walk is relatively easy-going, with only gentle gradients. The initial stretch follows the edge of the main road without a pavement; this is within a speed restriction zone but caution is needed so take good care of traffic for this section. The remainder of the route follows a mixture of field paths, grass tracks, stone tracks and quiet lanes. Some parts of the route are prone to mud after prolonged spells of wet weather especially near Cowclose Plantation and on the footpath beyond Longriggs Barn. The walk crosses several grass pastures which you will be sharing with both sheep and cattle. You will need to negotiate several gates, footbridges, kissing gates plus one stile. Allow 2.5 hours.
