Crummock Water

Western Lake District

Route: Crummock Water from Park Bridge

Area: Western Lake District

Date of walk: 11th February 2017

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 2.4 miles

Weather: Thick cloud, strong wind, very cold, constant drizzle

There was only time for a short stroll today but it’s worth recording in my walking diary as the surrounding landscape is beautiful. I parked at Park Bridge (aptly named – or perhaps not as there’s only room for two cars maximum)

After walking through Lowpark and above Highpark I climbed to the brow from where there is a good view along Crummock Water. I descended to the shore of Crummock Water here by the side of the dry stone wall, and on reaching the shoreline turned left

When I reached the pump house I headed inland and crossed the bridge over Park Beck to follow the track leading to Muncaster House. From there it’s a short stroll along a quiet lane back to the start

The weather was really poor but the landscape provided ample compensation for that and it was an enjoyable little outing
