Why we love this walk
A lovely walk exploring the incredible history of the small town of Longtown.
This 1.5 mile circular route is a great opportunity to learn more of Longtown and see the stunning views of the surrounding areas. The church, dated back to 1609, is a magnificent sight that I am sure children will be amazed by. Please note, some of this route is on quiet countryside roads – please be extremely careful with your little ones when walking.
This is a short, flat walk. The terrain is a mixture of town pavements, countryside roads and grassy footpaths, if choosing to take the circular route please note the terrain does become quite difficult underfoot once going beyond the church. If you’re walking with younger children I would recommend walking the linear route from Esk Bank to the church and back.
Note: Some sections can get muddy, suitable footwear is advised. There is a very small gate half way through this walk making the circular route unsuitable for pushchairs. The linear route is pram accessible.
We used free, off road parking on Esk Bank. This is also within close distance to Longtown Play Area. Postcode: CA6 5PT.
