Help connect High Bentham

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of High Bentham’s Slow Ways.

The main facilities on this 17 mile route are 5 miles from either end, at Wray (where there is an excellent licenced café - closed Mondays), and at Brookhouse/Caton (the Station pub in Caton is a slight detour from the cycle track). The middle 7 miles are pretty remote, with the trig point on Whit Moor being about half way. Head for this, there is a trodden track to follow, through the sedge and grass. Go through this and follow the track up to the trig point at the summit. I have walked the cycle track route to Lancaster from here many times and know it to be pleasant, easy, off-road and safe. It is the same route into Lancaster that I walked and described for LancHig Two: An interesting set of bridges at Crook o’ Lune, with picnic tables, a small car park, toilets, and a small burger and tea café open at weekends (Woodie’s). From here, the remainder of the route follows the former railway line, now a well maintained, tarmacked cycle track, past the Halton eco-village (which uses hydro-electric power from the river), Halton Station (now used by rowing clubs), under the M6, under the Lune Aqueduct, and right into Lancaster, all following the River Lune....

It promised to be a lovely route, but unfortunately the Lune Valley Ramble along the north bank of the River Lune is not in very good condition. From Bentham the route crossed a caravan site before going through fields next to the River Wenning. The route along lanes and fields to Hornby is very well used and was easy to follow, with views of Hornby Castle, and an obvious section of the former Wennington to Lancaster railway. This section through fields alongside the Lune was very easy. After passing where the River Wenning flows into the Lune I spotted a lonely stoop where the path turns a right angle towards a stile and gate. Emerging into the fields near a big weir, I felt I was on the home run; just a couple more easy pleasant riverside fields, and I could see the bridges at Crook o’ Lune. This went past the Halton eco-village (which uses hydro-electric power from the river), Halton Station (now used by rowing clubs), under the M6, under the Lune Aqueduct, and right into Lancaster, all following the River Lune....

It was raining a lot when I walked this, which may colour my opinion, but from High Bentham to Cowan Bridge there were an awful lot of fields full of long grass with no discernible footpath and I got very wet and tired. The route crosses the old bridge (alongside the current one) then follows Leck Beck before turning north again through fields....

At the right-angle near Warth House, the stile I’ve marked with a pink cross is broken and blocked and there is no trodden path here....

This route is lazily plotted, and in particular, near Cowan Bridge, it uses tracks that are not public rights of way, at least one of them being impassable with overgrown vegetation. I have uploaded an alternative which goes through Cowan Bridge, allowing a visit to the Tea Shop, and follows the river from the old bridge itself....
