The 11 mile walk

The Glasson Branch

For the leisurely walker this route will take five to six hours. For the more serious it makes a very rewarding half day hike.

Starting at either Conder Green or Glasson Dock. Proceed south along the main route, passing Cockersands, Cockerham Church and Ellel Grange.

On meeting the Lancaster Canal junction, go over the bridge, and turn westward, to follow the Glasson Branch, passing several locks and Thurnam Mill, now a Public House/ Restaurant. Continue along the canal towpath and you will find your way back to Glasson Dock and the canal basin.
