The boundaries on Kirkgate Lane are a mix of dry stone walls, earth banks and hedges. By the gate in SD5273 : A walk along Kirkgate Lane: views from the highest point (12c) there is a substantial stone wall. This photograph shows the sunny south-facing side. The stones are bleached and very dry with little evidence of moss or lichen growth. Compare with the damp north-facing side of the same wall: SD5273 : A walk along Kirkgate Lane (13)
Kirkgate Lane

Kirkgate Lane is an ancient stone surfaced track between Whitebeck Lane, Priest Hutton and Tewitfield Chapel on Kellet Lane. It is not officially classed as a public byway on the OS map but as an "other route with public access". It is a pleasant walk gently rising by approximately 20 metres to its highest point before dropping down towards the Chapel and the bridge over the Lancaster Canal. There are some lovely views to be had through gateways and the ancient hedges are full of wild flowers and shrubby bushes including hazel, elder and sloe.
