Walkers who use a riverside path in Cumbria have welcomed news that extra access routes will be set up to make it easier to reach.

Kirkby Lonsdale town council is adding new links down to the riverside path along the banks of the Lune near Devil's Bridge, a popular beauty spot, the Westmorland Gazette reports.

Steve Ripley of Silverdale is one of the locals who will be able to get his walking boots on and reach the path more readily, noting many have caused environmental damage in the past by kicking their way through undergrowth to reach the riverbank.

"More paths will help stop erosion as people want to walk right down to the river," he told the paper.

Raymond Moore from Levens was also pleased, commenting: "I think it's excellent news. It's just what the place needs."

The Devil's Bridge is one of the highlights of the countryside around Kirkby Lonsdale, which lies close to the meeting of the borders between Lancashire, Cumbria and North Yorkshire.

Walkers may wish to buy Ordnance Survey maps of the area, which is off the beaten track due to being between the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales national parks.
