At the Devil's Bridge you head west crossing two roads and head up to Wood End.

Looking down onto Kirkby Lonsdale from Wood End. On the left is St Mary's Church.

 

Soon after Wood End you turn left and south, by a white house, following the footpath sign down to Sellet Mill

 

The path to Sellet Mill is muddy and stony!

 

From Sellet Mill you then turn right and west towards Sellet Hall (images above).

 

The view towards Kirkby Lonsdale from Sellet Hall.

 

From Sellet Hall you head, from the 'toad crossing' sign, south on the sunken wooded Hosticle Lane (medieval hospital connection).

 

Hosticle Lane.

At the end of Hosticle lane is the quiet village of Whittington.

 

The artistic pebble dashed entrance to St Michael's Church, Whittington.

 

St Michael's Church has a broad 16th century tower but most of the church is from the rebuild of 1875.

The Dragons Head in Whittington is now closed!

 

From Whittington you head south-east down Burrow Mill Lane track until you reach the River Lune and head north on the Lune Valley Ramble.

 

You then head north along the western bank of the River Lune all the way back to the Devil's Bridge and Kirkby Lonsdale.

 

 

 

Are these gas pipes crossing the River Lune?

 

A most pleasant open river walk - part of the Lune Valley Ramble

 

 

A startled flock of seagulls!

 

You now approach the Stanley bridge carrying the busy A65 into Kirkby Lonsdale
