Hampsfell Grange over Sands

Distance 5 kilometres (3 miles)

Grange-over-Sands is elegantly poised between the Lakeland fells and the sands of Morecambe Bay. It quietly retains much of the Victorian and Edwardian charm of a once fashionable seaside resort. The specialist shops, cafes and bakeries are a delight to explore, especially after an uplifting walk into the foothills of the Lake District.

The route described on the leaflet is a little over 3 miles (5 kilometres) in length and offers a good introduction to walking in the area. The first section is on tough terrain, uphill, through woodland and on limestone pavement so walking boots are strongly recommended. The rewards are well worth it - the summit provides wonderful views to the Lakeland Fells, the Howgills and across Morecambe Bay.
