Walk: River Lune, Crook O’ Lune, Lune Aqueduct
Start Point: The Greyhound, Halton Grid Reference: SD 503 648 
Distance: 5.2 miles Ascent: 250 feet
Time: 2.75 hours
Weather: Sunny intervals with one heavy shower.

23 people walked, plus another 5 who opted to do a shorter walk. There were lovely views of the river with reflections of the Autumn tree colours. People particularly liked the crossing over the aqueduct, with two cormorants visible on the river below. There was also a wild swimmer in the river above Halton.
