Lake District Circuit

Posted on Wednesday, 23 May 2018 . Permalink

Joy O'Flanagan undertook our Lakes recces for 2018. Our Lake District Circuit is made up of the South, East, North and West each of 4 stages. The result is - we hope - a pretty full exploration of the Lake District and its different areas.


 Walking to Keswick, Skiddaw House behind. This is the day from Threlkeld to Keswick.


The Langdale Pikes and a typical Cumbrian dry stone wall. We are looking into Great Langdale.


In the West, this is Black Sail hut in Ennerdale.


Walkers relax outside the Black Sail hut. This is a small hostel, unusual for the UK in being in the wilds yet manned.


From the Lake District Circuit and Coast to Coast routes, which are similar here, we see Crummock Water and Buttermere. The peaks are Red Pike on the Left and Grasmoor on the Right.


The North circuit has these views of Grasmoor and Grizedale Pike.


At Tarn Hows near Coniston, the view to Wetherlam.

Thanks Joy!
