The walk begins at Tewitfield, which is the northernmost navigable point on the Lancaster Canal. The canal is followed for a short distance before field-paths lead to a crossing of the A6 and a walk in the fields surrounding the villages of Yealand Redmayne and Yealand Storrs. The path goes through a succession of narrow fields that were defined over 700 years ago and then round along the edge of the woods of White Moss. A long stretch of paths along field edges brings you to Leighton Hall and the only stiff climb of the walk, which has long views to the south over Morecambe Bay. An easy descent to Yealand Redmayne leads to a point reached earlier in the walk, where the outward route is retraced along the disused canal. Views of the Pennines and the south Lakeland hills are frequent.
