Western Lake District

Route: Loweswater from Maggie’s Bridge

Area: Western Lake District

Date of walk: 1st August 2015

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 5.8 miles

Weather: Perfect

This is one of our favourite local walks – there’s a lot of varied scenery packed into a short distance, and all of it is beautiful

We parked as usual at Maggie’s Bridge and walked along the track through High Nook Farm. Beyond the farm the terraced path gains height and passes above Holme Wood, with wonderful views of Lorton Vale

After reaching the end of the lake, the path heads away from the fells towards gentler rolling countryside, before turning back at the half way point towards Loweswater

We walked through Holme Wood along the side of the lake and then across fields back to Maggie’s Bridge

The weather today was superlative, making a great walk even greater
