Crook of Lune (Cumbria)


The Crook of Lune is an area around a sharp (~90 degree) bend the River Lune near Lowgill in Cumbria. The Crook of Lune Bridge over the river here dates from the 16th century. There are the Crook of Lune Woods and the Crook of Lune Farm here.

Note: this is different to the better known Crook O' Lune, which is 20 miles to the south, near Caton in Lancashire - where there is an even sharper, shepherd’s crook-shaped, bend in the River Lune. It is this location in Lancashire which was the subject of JMW Turner's painting "Crook of Lune, Looking towards Hornby Castle, c.1816-18" and where ther is a stone road bridge over the River Lune and two former railway bridges, now used by walkers and cyclists.
