Kirkby Lonsdale & South Cumbria

Lune Valley

In Cumbria’s south-east corner on the banks of the River Lune where the counties of Cumbria, Yorkshire and Lancashire meet lies the picturesque market town of Kirkby Lonsdale. The town, located on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and within easy reach of the Lake District, is a pleasing mix of elegant 18th-century buildings and stone cottages huddled around cobbled courtyards and narrow alleyways. Surrounding the town is a rolling landscape of winding lanes and verdant green fields bordered by high hedges and dry-stone walls. Its attractive setting is epitomised by the glorious view up the Lune Valley from Ruskin’s View. The artist and poet John Ruskin visited the spot, just through the town’s churchyard, after viewing Turner’s now famous painting of it, and was enchanted, writing that, ‘I do not know in all my own country, still less in France or Italy, a place more naturally divine’. To the west lies Morecambe Bay and Arnside, a small and sleepy Victorian seaside resort, on the estuary of the River Kent where it meets the bay. Around this village the deciduous woodlands, limestone grasslands and coastal salt marshes are enclosed by low limestone hills creating a perfect environment for rare butterflies and marshland birds. The wooded hill of Arnside Knott , a high flat rock modest by Lakeland standards and largely owned by the National Trust, is a good vantage point for views of Morecambe Bay and the Lake District mountains.
