  • Excellent views over the river valley even though there was low cloud. Benches there to rest on and admire the view which John Ruskin enjoyed. 
  • A magnificent view and a lovely walk through the Churchyard. Ruskin claimed it was one of the best views in England. He was correct !! A must visit. 
  • You can read as much as you like about this iconic view point but you have to experience it first hand to understand why Ruskin's View is indeed iconic. It's the sort of place where you can just stand...  more »

  • The river Lune and valley can be reached by walking through the churchyard to Ruskin's View. Sit a while and take in the beautiful surroundings. Access the river bank via a steep descent down steps and walk to Devil's Bridge, a twenty minute walk from Ruskin's famous inspiration. Walk into the village and try one of the many restaurants, coffee shops, cafes, or local pubs. Visit local shops or stalls on market days.
  • A spectacular place. A must see if you are in the Lancaster area. Truly one of the most beautiful English pastoral scenes.
  • Great area. Excellent views and the information board helps identify features. Kids loved picking areas out on the map. Lots of walks to and from here and also the village to look around.
  • Love kirkby. Wonderful peaceful place
  • I could of spent hours here but the rain started.
