LUNE AQUEDUCT TO THE HERMITAGE WITH WHEELS
The Lune Aqueduct is a navigable aqueduct that carries the Lancaster Canal over the River Lune, on the east side of the city of Lancaster in Lancashire, England. It was completed in 1797. This is one of 2 walks that we have done with the wheelchair both starting at the Lune Aqueduct.

Fron the car park you head through the gate and down the path towards the aqueduct, here we turn right in the opposite direction to our other Lune walk.
Pass under the motorway bridges , lots of deigns which was cool too see, although i know its not to everyones taste but we enjoyed looking at the designs.
The path has been designed for wheelchairs, bikes and prams so its great throughout the whole walk. Some lovely viewpoints to take photos.
The Hermitage Estate was originally built for the Lord Mayor of Lancaster, John Sharp, in 1849. And the area itself – the Crook O’ Lune – has been the subject of renowned poets and artists. The Hermitage Estate is a luxury Airbnb now unlike any other. Situated on a private island on the River Lune right by the Crook O Lune picnic site.
Once you get to Crook O Lune there is toilets and a cafe. this is the turning point to return back the same way.
