places to visit
This 18thC coaching inn, situated in the picturesque village of Burrow was fully renovated in 2007 and has become an award-winning destination food pub. A wonderfully relaxing environment, craggy stone floors and warm solid wood furniture.
The town, which sits above the River Lune, which boasts good salmon and trout fishing, is a tourist
destination in its own right, but also serves as a gateway to the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.
One of the smallest ‘towns’ in Cumbria, Kirkby Lonsdale enjoys a natural, unspoiled, rural environment which
includes attractive byways and bridleways, along with footpaths and rights of way for those who favour
Devil’s Bridge, which spans the Lune on the outskirts of the town, has its origins shrouded in mystery. It
cannot be accurately dated, but is said to have been built by the Devil in exchange for the first soul to cross
the bridge. His demand was thwarted when a dog was the first to use the bridge.
The history of the town is hinted at in street names such as Jingling Lane and Salt Pie Lane. Its houses
range from the most modern of the 21st Century back to the 18th Century’s elegant, spacious homes and
smaller stone cottages.
