Sedbergh to Kirkby Lonsdale

This is a gentle route exploring the lush Lune Valley connecting the two lively market towns of Sedbergh and Kirkby Lonsdale.
Route Start

Route Info

This route leaves the lovely market town of Sedbergh, with its accommodation, shops and cafes, and takes you down one side of the Lune valley to Kirkby Lonsdale, then back up the other side.

On the way out the route uses lovely quiet lanes, with a short section on a quiet A road, and passes through the village of Barbon. More quiet lanes drop you down to cross the historic Devil’s Bridge across the river. You then go into Kirkby Lonsdale which is well worth exploring with a great range of shops, cafes and historic buildings. The way back to Sedbergh follows the other side of the valley. The final section uses a busier road as it goes into Sedbergh.
