Heritage Trails

We are in the process of creating a number of local circular walks, of differing length, that all begin and end at one of the pubs or at Lowick Village Store, where it's intended you will be able to pick up a trail leaflet with map and information that should be useful on your walk

Below is a brief description of each intended walk

Industrial Heritage Trail: Lowick has a long history of mining coal and lime with the remains of several pits and lime kilns very close to the village. In addition farming has taken place around here since prehistoric times. This walk, that offers options of different lengths, will take you around some of these sites, most notably to the remains of the Dryburn Limekiln, that is in itself a project to conserve this magnificent structure.

Lowick Village Trail: A walk around the village that explores the many different buildings, some quite historic in their own right. Look out for the former pubs, churches and shops.

Pilgrims' Way Trail: Lowick is situated along the route of one of the original Pilgrims' trails between Melrose and the Holy Island of Lindisfarne. This trail beginning at the Black Bull passes through the churchyard of the historic St. John the Baptist Church. The walk is in two parts, the first following the route to Hunting Hall, the second from Hunting Hall to the point where Lindisfarne first comes into view.
