Caton-with-Littledale is situated within the Forest of Bowland National Landscape (formerly AONB) so we have some wonderful countryside for you to enjoy.

Walks running close to the River Lune or becks are prone to erosion or flooding, and you may find you have to alter your route if your path is closed or impassable.

Four Circular Walks Within the Parish

These walks were developed by the Caton-with-Littledale Footpath Group with support from Lancashire Countryside Service.

  1. Riverside Walk – 5 mile walk along the banks of the River Lune
  2. Annas Ghyll Walk – 3 miles through fields and lanes
  3. Littledale Walk – 5 miles through hills and dales

The Greenway, originally called the Lune Millennium Park, is a smooth, hard surfaced path which covers a distance of 10km (6 miles approx.) from Lancaster to Caton. The path follows the course of a disused railway and so is relatively level. As the path is mixed use, walkers will come across cyclists. In our parish there are access points at Crook o’Lune, Station Road, Holme Lane, Bull Beck Car Park and directly from Hornby Road at the eastern end of the Greenway.

Lune Valley Ramble

The Lune Valley Ramble is 16½ miles (26.5 km) long and traces the course of the River Lune’s lower reaches through some of the North West’s finest lowland countryside. Bounded by high moors, limestone hills and shadowed by the distant peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Leck Fell, the route offers excellent, easy walking and is signposted and waymarked throughout.

The Lunesdale Walk traces a figure of eight, crossing at Loyn Bridge, about half a mile north of Hornby. It is waymarked throughout its 37 mile (59kms) length with dedicated waymark discs (a yellow arrow and walk name on a green background).You can pick up the Walk at any point along its length, but the most easily accessible locations are at Carnforth, Hornby and Wennington. It’s ideal for a long weekend break (for the whole route) or for linear and circular day walks.

The Lune Valley is served by local bus and rail services which may be used to access the Lunesdale Walk at various points along its route, meaning you can enjoy a day’s walk without the need for a car!
