Ballooning Over Kirkby Lonsdale Cumbria

About Kirkby Lonsdale

The traditional and quaint market town of Kirkby Lonsdale sits nestled at the nexus of three counties: Cumbria, Lancashire and North Yorkshire. Enjoying its relaxed position on the banks of the River Lune, it is surrounded by a jigsaw of contrasting countryside that includes rolling pastures and brooding moorland.

In 1227 the town was awarded its ‘market charter’ and the right to host a fair each September. It became home to the Devil’s Bridge around 1370, and at the time, was the only crossing over the River Lune for miles. This added importance to the town. The name, as many of the same, is linked to a myth that the Devil appeared to an old woman, promising to build a bridge in exchange for the first soul to cross over it. When the bridge was finished, the cunning woman threw bread over the bridge and her dog chased after it, thereby outwitting the Devil!
