Its not all hills here
Having lived just south of Kendal, for a long time now. Not always wanting to head off to the hills. I have recently walked the Lancaster to canal through to Preston. Sometimes long distances, sometimes just a couple of hours. It only seems very busy around the Lancaster, Morcombe at the weekends. Try veering of along the River Lune and follow the river through Lancaster and out to Glasson Dock.. and there are no hills, you dont need maps or a compass, there are even pubs on the wander.
