A6070 Warton - Crooklands
Burton-in-Kendal

There are two A-road links of almost exactly the same length between Lancaster and Kendal. One, presumably the more important, is the A6; the A6070 is part of the alternative.

It starts at a roundabout on the A6 near Warton, about half a mile north of the A601(M), and heads north, following the M6 fairly closely for its entire route. It is not long before it crosses to the east side of the motorway and then the Lancaster Canal is crossed immediately afterwards; this is the southernmost road crossing of the unnavigable section of canal.

After changing county the A6070 goes through Burton-in-Kendal, the largest place on its route. Burton has an M6 service station named after it - but that is northbound only and therefore on the other side of the motorway.

The A6070 then squeezes in between the M6 and Holmepark Fell before crossing the disused Lancaster Canal again and reaching a roundabout where it terminates. The other three directions at the roundabout are the A65; the extra one (to the left) is a spur leading back to the M6 at J36. Kendal is straight on.
