I checked out our friend and fellow blogger Sir Hugh for ideas on walks in the area and found a few. Today's walk was mainly his route. Here.
Walking down the Glasson branch of the Lancaster canal was as straight as a dye. It wasn't far before we reached the large lagoon and the last of the lock gates. A lovely day with lots of folk about.
We passed over a revolving bridge and called in at a cafe that was open for coffee.
A short road walk brought us to good views across the bay to Sunderland point, the Lune estuary and Heysham.
We joined a queue of folk on Marsh lane all heading like us to the coastal footpath at Crook Farm. Plenty of birds about and lots of Sea Campion.
We turned off the coast path at Cockersand abbey. The abbey was founded in 1184 as the hospital of St Mary. The chapter house being the only structure standing.
From the abbey our route passed through a now deserted farm to the c roads which led us almost back to the Lancaster canal but we diverted across Thurnham moss where the path was well over grown, especially at tge gutter bridges to the A588 main road.
From there it was a short distance back to the car.
