This walk offers fantastic views of contrast, initially across Morecambe Bay, why, you can see Plover Scar Lighthouse in the Lune Estuary and indeed further to the Lake District and sometimes beyond.
We also have the delight of views to the Yorkshire Dales and the Three Peaks, once we have reached the summit of Grit Fell.
Our walk starts at Jubilee Tower, a monument at the side of the road between Lancaster and Abbeystead. Jubilee Tower was built to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee in 1897.
The car park opposite was constructed in 1973 when, a wooden coffin was excavated. The coffin dates back to the 7th Century, it contained a woollen shroud, human hair and toe nails, it is now part of the collection at Lancaster Museum.
There are good paths throughout the walk, we visit the summit of Grit Fell before our visit to the rocky summit of Clougha Pike, an airy perch overlooking Lancaster, Morecambe Bay and the Lake District.
We also visit some very interesting artefacts that shape this landscape.
From the summit of Grit Fell, we can seek out a number of interventions in this landscape such as the Boundary Stones, Shooters Pile, Castle of Cold Comfort and for me the highlight; Andy Goldsworthy's installation/ sculpture 'Clougha Pike'.
This is rough country made easy by the paths and estate roads - it's well worth a visit!
