The old market town of Burton-in-Kendal is more of a large village these days but makes a very pleasant base for a day out. Even though there had been a belated outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease a few days before our long planned visit, we were able to adapt the walk to use the quiet lanes of the area with the paths that were still open. The disused Lancaster canal is full of wildlife and gives good views of the Lake District.

I disagree with Brian's comment - I've walked in this area several times and although the M6 is audible (naturally, it is close by) it doesn't distract from the great views and the road through Burton wasn't too busy on the occasions we've walked along it. The part along the canal is quiet too.

This walk is far from tranquil. The background noise from the M6 is never far away and parts of the walk are along a busy road.
