Burton is an ancient market town, now a rather large village without its former importance. There are two inns, one of which at least has the appearance of having been a staging post for mail coaches. The walk goes along quiet lanes to the hamlet of Hutton Roof before climbing the fell from which it takes its name and descending by a lane and a limestone pavement to the disused Lancaster Canal. There was an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease two days before our long-planned visit, but it was possible to adapt the walk to use the paths that remained open with a view to revising the walk at a later date.

Did walk in July 2012 after heavy rain. Walk was very dry and easy to navigate. Stuart & Janet
