I found this walk on a walking website by chance. Normally I would spurn such a source being sufficiently conceited to opine that I am capable of devising my own routes, but then I realised such information is worth considering because the route went through the middle of the town of Lancaster, but seeking out interest and pedestrian ways which are not obvious just from the map.
|The pub shown in photos below is on the opposite bank of the River Lune|
where the caravan and "PH" appear.
|The two Petes look towards the area called Snatchems and the Golden Ball pub on the other side of the River Lune. In olden times potential sailors were press-ganged from that pub and its locality hence the name Snatchems|
|An interesting chunk of flotsam - quite a posh looking toy car|
|A zoom to the Golden Ball. A guy on a jet ski boat can be seen in front of the pub racing up and down at speed - each to his own, but I reckon after ten minutes I would be bored stiff, but I don't suppose he would think much of walking|
|Lancaster railway station - a good attempt at mock Tudour (actual 1846)|
