It's a very peaceful part of Kirkby Lonsdale as it's just behind St Mary's Church. Amazing view in most types of weather and has some nice paths to walk around.

If you're in this neck of the woods then Ruskin's View is a definite must. The scenery is fabulous and there are many excellent walks nearby. Lots of lovely shops and restaurants to visit in the vicinity. Definitely worth a visit.

I would never grow tired of this view. We were very fortunate to have clear skies to appreciate the whole scene.

As the title suggests.......A beautiful tranquil scene, on a lovely day. Nothing better. Accessible through the church grounds. There is a walk which takes you by the side of the river to Devil's Bridge.

I have never stopped in Kirby Lonsdale before. We have always been on our way to another destination. But this was a lovely surprise when we parked in Kirby Lonsdale. It was a beautiful sunny day and the scenery was breath taking.

Has everything, gently flowing river, rolling dales countryside and hills as a backdrop. Listen to stream and the birds. Lovely!

Worth the climb but not with limited mobility. The sign says 40ish steps but much closer to 90! At the top the view is outstanding
