Route: Arnside Knott

Area: Southern Lake District

Date of walk: 24th October 2014

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 4.9 miles

Ascent: 700 feet

Weather: overcast at first but brighter later on

Having visited Leighton Moss in the morning (click here for the link), I decided on another walk in the area, and after leaving the reserve made the short journey over to Arnside. I walked through Ashmeadow Woodlands down to the estuary where the River Kent enters Morecambe Bay. It was high tide and the water lapped over the path in places

After walking along the shore for a while I headed inland at Far Arnside and climbed up to Arnside knott. It was easy going. The weather had been indifferent up to this point, but as I neared the top there was some welcome sunshine and blue skies which enhanced the great views

It was an easy descent back down to Arnside. I’d really enjoyed this walk in what is a new area for me
