Set on a hill above the
River Lune, this is arguably one of Cumbria’s
most scenic towns, lying close to magnificent
peaks such as Skiddaw, Helvellyn, Great Gable
and England's highest point, Scafell Pike.
It is particularly well known for its Devil’s Bridge and Ruskin’s View.
The bridge spans the River Lune and was built in the 13th century - reputedly by Satan himself.
Ruskin’s View can be found atop a series of steps near St Mary’s Church.
