594 Bilsborrow

In the headlong rush up the M6 to The Lakes it's easy to miss Bilsborrow. But when the forecast for the Cumbrian mountains is rain there's no hurry, so why not turn aside for a stroll beside the Lancaster Canal. Here you'll find the quaint Guy's Thatched Hamlet and some little used field paths that bring you back to Owd Nell's to complete the day.
