Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Gathering at Longlands for the start
Who dat puddycat
Ready for the off
Gina leads off from The Longlands
The end of the canal . . .
cut off by the M6
The first of the Tewitfield locks . . .
which have plenty of water coming down from them today . . .
which seems to suit this swan
Reflections in the still air
Along the towpath . . .
with remnants of the locks . . .
and the story of their use . . .
as we head towards Kendal
Looking back towards the M6 motorway
Time to leave the canal at Moss Bridge . . .
and looking back from Moss Bridge
A sheep enjoys a drink . . .
as we take our first coffee stop . . .
looking back to Burton-in-Kendal
Continuing the walk . . .
we pass this unusual tree - or is it two trees
Sheila leads down a green lane
Time for . . .
the second coffee stop . . .
near Priest Hutton . . .
before continuing on to rejoin . . .
Reflections along the canal . . .
and a very des res
In fact all the bridges are mirrored today . . .
the mirror effect only being disturbed by a passing canoe
Roger, who's lost a shoe?
Not an ugly duckling
The ever-expanding marina . . .
at Tewitfield . . .
and a last view
John, Betsy and Garry
Jim's a li'l elf
Phil, Helen and Christine
Debbie, Judith and Korser . . .
with Gina, Daphne
John, Brian, Les and Lesley
Garry closes an excellent meal
