SANKEY VALLEY. Balsam And Berries.

I’ve written about the Sankey Valley before, the canal and the history that’s threaded along it. It’s an easy walk for me to get to it and the web of paths and access points means that there is always a variety of walking that you can do.

It’s a journey I’ve made by the coastline hugging rail route quite a few times. From the southern busy-ness of Barrow and it’s shipyards, up past Ravenglass with it’s Roman Fort and miniature railway. Then along the open stretches from Seascale, past Nethertown and its reclaimed houses […]
