Monday 7 May 2012: Kirkby Lonsdale
Disappointingly they ran out of maps for the Kendal Urban Race so we were unable to run and came home early. We took a scenic view out of the town which was new to us and emerged on to the main Settle road at Kirkby Lonsdale. This is one of those pretty market towns which we never visit these days because the road to the Lakes goes around it. We had a brief stop on the bridge over the River Lune which is a popular tourist spot and also a favourite place for foolhardy folks to jump off into the river for fun! It is very high and not to be encouraged! This is one view from the bridge.
