A Lancashire Walk that explores the Lune Estuary and coast to the west of Lancaster. This Lancashire walk starts from Glasson Dock which at one time had high hopes as being a port serving Lancaster. The route follows a section of the Lancashire Coastal Way with the opportunity to visit the ruins of Cockersand Abbey before continuing along the coast. The final section uses rural inland footpaths to return to the start.
