Past the big tree in SD5273 : A walk along Kirkgate Lane (15) the hedges don't overhang so much and the track opens up. The right hand hedge is not cut so neatly as the left hand one but this encourages a diversity of flora. Here there are hawthorn, blackthorn (Sloe) and elder; on the other side it is mainly nettles and hazel. Probably all down to different farm owners.
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.
