Kirkby Lonsdale is itself a charming market town, sitting on the banks of the picturesque River Lune, which has attracted artists and poets for centuries (J.M.W. Turner was just one artist to paint the area.) Take the walking route over the medieval Devil's Bridge and up the 86 Radical Steps to St Mary's Church and you will find yourself at the viewpoint known locally as Ruskin's View. First painted by Turner, this area was then immortalised by local poet John Ruskin, who described it as the loveliest view in the world.
More challenging hiking routes can be found to the east in the Yorkshire Dales, and to the north-west, in the Lake District. The 628m Gragareth is the highest peak in Lancashire, and you can see as far as the coast from the summit, or explore one of its many caves as you make your ascent.
