Just west of Lancaster is the Crook O' Lune Bridge where there is a car park with toilets and a seasonal café, making a good base for a walk. This one goes first westward along the Lune to the growing village of Halton before crossing to the south bank by an old bridge. The Lune is followed again using, in part, an old railway line to get round a tricky point. The river is left to climb to a 19th Century viewpoint known (after the poet) as Gray's Seat and is rejoined for a walk through flower meadows back to the start.

Did this walk today, route to Gray’s Seat is open, you just need to follow the wire fence on the left, where the path appears to go straight on, do a sharp left and continue following the wire fence, it is a bit overgrown in places, but not impassable.

Lovely walk. Please note that there no longer seems to be access to Grays Seat. A new fence has been erected making it impossible to go more than a few yards up the path.
