Find the perfect dog walk on your journey - Driving with Dogs

Edited: 4th January 2020

M6 Junction 35 dog walk near Warton, Lancashire


The woodland is great for dogs, with no stiles and plenty to occupy the canine nose.

If you have a bit of spare time - why not make an extra stop in Carnforth and take a peek at the famous station waiting room used in the film Brief Encounter? This is the actual waiting room they used in the film. Goose bumps!


Free car park, with height restriction of 2.1m. Dog poo bins in the car park.

Nearest dog-friendly pub is The Malt Shovel - it's a cheerful locals community pub with pub classics and a friendly atmosphere. The address is 66 Main Street, Warton, LA5 9PG Phone: 01524 874149


Before starting the walk it's worth having a look at what could well be the most dramatic car park in the UK, where peregrine falcons and little owls nest in the austere cliffs of a former quarry. You might also see climbers hanging onto the steep rock face.

The walk starts on a single path near to the entrance to the car park. Follow it, past a stone seat with a fine view over Morecombe Bay on a good day. Then go down a few steps and through a wooden kissing gate to enter the nature reserve.

Walk with the wall to the right hand side until a clear path leads up the hill to two wooden gates. Continue through these to follow the path uphill with the fence to the right.

We turned round after 20 minutes, but there is plenty more walking to be had by staying on the same path.

Return to the car park on the same path through the woodland.
