Start of my canal walk, Lancaster Canal, Carnforth

I haven't walked this canal in any particular order so I'll blog chronically my walk.

On a sunny Monday I caught a train to Carnforth and joined the canal in the town centre where I began walking down to Lancaster.  The walk is approximately eight to nine miles.  I couldn't ask for a better day weatherwise and it was pleasure walking on its towpath with the surrounding open countryside.

After passing Bolton Le Sands I saw stunning views of the coast and Morecambe Bay's blue waters and reached Hest Bank Hotel for a drink stop.  After having a drink I continued along the tow path towards Lancaster via the beautiful Lune Aqueduct, the city centre's outskirts, the cathedral and finished at Bridge 100 besides the White Cross Pub.  After having dinner in the city centre I made my way to the railway station for my train home to Leeds
