Walk: Tithe Barn Hill ,Crook Farm, Cockersand Abbey, Clarkson’s farm, Kendal Hill, Brows Bridge & Lancaster Canal (Glasson branch)
Start Point: Glasson Dock Grid Reference: SD 446 561
Distance: 5.1 miles Ascent: Little
Time: 2.75 hours    
Weather: Sunny
Comments: 17 people set off up Tithe Barn Hill to join the Lancashire Coastal Path to Crook Farm & then south to Cockersand Abbey where we took a break & learned all about the Abbey from a notice board on the door. The route then turned inland along a single-track road & up the drive to Clarkson’s farm. We crossed several fields to Kendal Hill & on to towards Brows Bridge where we joined the canal back to the marina where many boats were moored.
