This walk has bridleways, woodland, a limestone pavement, the canal and a few fields, plus good views of the Lake District from the elevated towpath, as well as from the highest point of the walk, making a more than satisfactory day out. There is a short, steep section near the start, but the climb up the bridleway is very gradual. Care needs to be taken on the limestone pavement, but it is well worth it, especially if you are interested in plants that abound in the crevices. If you are interested in industrial archaeology, then the modest but ancient coke ovens by the canal will take your attention, as will the information about the canal and the mills at Holme.
