A 7.5 mile circular walk from the small village of Cinderbarrow in Lancashire, close to the county boundary with Cumbria. The walk takes you through this lovely area of north Lancashire, enjoying a stretch of the Lancaster Canal, large rolling fields, pretty villages and dense woodlands.

The walk follows a mixture of canal towpath, field paths, stone tracks and woodland paths. The gradients are relatively easy, but there is one short climb from Yealand Conyers to Deepdale Wood. There are a couple of crossings of the A6 road that need care. You will need to negotiate several gates plus a couple of stiles. You will be sharing some of the fields with sheep and cattle. Allow 4 hours.

The walk starts and finishes at the free Cinderbarrow Picnic Site car park (with 2m height restriction barrier), located on Tarn Lane just 80 metres east of the junction with the A6. This car park is also home to the Cinderbarrow Miniature Railway. Approximate post code LA5 9RX.

Walk Sections

Start to Lancaster Canal
Start to Lancaster Canal

Start point: 54.1757 lat, -2.7461 long
End point: 54.1759 lat, -2.7419 long

From the car park, head back to the vehicle entrance (noting the miniature railway) to reach Tarn Lane. Turn left along the lane and follow this ahead as it crosses the railway and continues to reach the canal bridge. Just before the canal bridge, go through a gate on the right to join the towpath of the Lancaster Canal.

Lancaster Canal to Tewitfield Locks

Start point: 54.1759 lat, -2.7419 long
End point: 54.1667 lat, -2.7377 long

Turn right along the canal towpath, with the canal running on your left. This part of the canal is cut off from the main navigable line by what will become apparent in 600yds, when you are confronted by the M6 motorway. When you can go no further, take a short side track on the right and turn left onto Cinderbarrow Lane. Follow the lane as it swings left to cross the M6. On the far side, turn right onto a side road and access the canal by a gate on the left. Quickly you arrive at the former Tewitfield Locks.

Start point: 54.1667 lat, -2.7377 long
End point: 54.1656 lat, -2.7516 long

At the first canal bridge, take a track on the right which leads down to take you through the M6 underpass. On the far side follow the footpath as it turns right and continues alongside the motorway embankment. At the end of the field turn left (there is no other alternative) and at the next corner bear right into the adjacent field. Keeping to the hedgerow on the right brings you to a farm track at the far side. Follow the track into the next field and then to a set of metal gates. Go through these, cross the railway bridge and then continue to reach a junction with the A6.

A6 Crossing to Peter Lane

Start point: 54.1656 lat, -2.7516 long
End point: 54.1628 lat, -2.7624 long

Cross over the A6 with care and go ahead into Dykes Lane. At the junction turn left onto the drive to Dykes House. As you reach its yard, cross to a picket gate leading into a huge field. Here, follow the line of telephone poles which lead to a fence corner. After this continue with the fence on your left to reach a wooden gate within a wall, which leads you out onto Yealand Road. Turn left along the road. At the next junction turn right on Peter Lane.

Start point: 54.1628 lat, -2.7624 long
End point: 54.1676 lat, -2.7714 long

Where the lane bends left, turn right onto a footpath. The path leads alongside the edge of trees following a signpost in the direction of Deepdale Wood. When you reach a large meadow, cross to the far-right corner. Here another signpost points left for Deepdale Wood, in front of a gate and squeeze stile. Follow this and, after crossing a wooden stile, the path enters dense woodland, breaks slightly left, clambers over a limestone outcrop and continues to a wooden gate. Pass through this, turn left and then at the next junction turn right to descend a surprisingly steep incline. Deepdale Pond is to the right.

End point: 54.1645 lat, -2.7773 long

Keep on the path and then at the next junction turn left onto a broader track. Follow the waymark posts through this part of the wood with a pronounced left turn at the first junction and then bearing to the right at the next (where a private keep out sign gives helpful guidance) to reach fields before Leighton Hall Farm. Aim for the farm buildings to reach the access drive in front of the buildings.

Start point: 54.1645 lat, -2.7773 long
End point: 54.1777 lat, -2.7755 long

Turn right and then, at a metal gate just beyond the farm, turn right onto a footpath. This stone track leads across a field to a wooden gate. Go through the gate and for the next mile keep to the field boundary, at first with the boundary on the right and then, after a metal gate (with a bent top bar), with the boundary on the left. This path will bring you to the hamlet of Yealand Storrs.

Yealand Storrs to Woodland Track

Start point: 54.1777 lat, -2.7755 long
End point: 54.1813 lat, -2.7695 long

Turn right on the road, pass between houses and, after leaving the village, turn left through a gate. There are two paths signposted here. Take the right-hand option. This leads across a broad meadow to a wooden gate. Go through this and keep straight on, following a line of trees to a gate on the edge of woodland. Turn right onto a wide track.

Woodland Track to Bridleway
Woodland Track to Bridleway

Start point: 54.1813 lat, -2.7695 long
End point: 54.1859 lat, -2.7527 long

Keep straight on this woodland track alongside White Moss. After a small holding on the left, your route briefly follows a drive then continues on a grassy track to reach a wooden gate. Go through the gate, bear left into the adjacent field and follow the hedge (on your right) to reach a stile. Once over this, cross a very rutted field aiming for the remains of a huge tree in the hedgerow opposite. Behind this is a stile leading onto the A6. Cross the road with care, turn left along the far grass verge and walk for 300yds to reach a bridleway on the right.

Bridleway to Stone House
Bridleway to Stone House

Start point: 54.1859 lat, -2.7527 long
End point: 54.1834 lat, -2.7391 long

Turn right onto this bridleway and follow it as it leads between fields for the next 1000yds. When you reach a lane turn right. After 150yds, take a footpath on the left, passing through the garden of a stone-built house.

Stone House to End

Start point: 54.1834 lat, -2.7391 long
End point: 54.1759 lat, -2.7461 long

Beyond the garden, the footpath leads onto a track which crosses the railway. On the next bend go through a gap in the hedge to reach the towpath of the Lancaster Canal. Turn right, pass beneath the first bridge and leave the canal at the next bridge onto Tarn Lane. This is the spot at which you first joined the canal. Simply retrace your steps back along Tarn Lane to reach the car park where the walk began.
