The Radical Steps, Kirkby Lonsdale
The Radical Steps, Kirkby Lonsdale
The steps lead from the banks of the Lune to St. Mary's churchyard. The steps were built in 1819 by Francis Pearson. The locals came to call them the Radical Steps on account of the political leanings of the builder. How many steps are there? Reputedly there are 86 - I didn't count them, but there are indeed a lot - especially if one is climbing rather than descending.
