Carnforth, Over and Nether Kellet

The walk has a particular interest in that it is based upon the railway station used in 'Brief Encounter' but it also has its own merits. You soon leave the town by the canal and after a short stretch alongside the M6, beautiful woodlands and ancient, flower-filled hay meadows are crossed before the canal leads back into Carnforth. On a hot day you will want to drop into the pub at Over Kellet, the village shop at Nether Kellet (for ice cream) and even another pub on the canalside for afternoon tea.

An easy-to-follow walk (didn't feel like 7.5 miles) with lovely quiet paths and woods, and wonderful views over Morecambe Bay and the Lake District. We took the train and made a day of it. The refreshment room at Carnforth station, restored to 'Brief Encounter' authenticity, has excellent cake. The second-hand bookshop in the town, well worth a browse, stays open until 5.30 every day.
