Distance: 2.0 miles

Weather: overcast, very cold wind

There was only time for a short local walk today, so we decided to revisit Crummock Water in the west of the district. We parked by aptly named Park Bridge, though there is only space for 1 car here and anyone following this walk may need to find another spot – possibly Church Bridge near the Kirkstile Inn

We walked through Lowpark and joined the elevated path which runs round the shoulder of Mellbreak, giving wonderful views along Crummock Water towards Haystacks and Great Gable

We then descended to the lake and followed the shoreline path as far as the Pump House, at which point we headed inland towards Muncaster House. Just before the house we turned left along the quiet lane which took us back to the start

A lovely short walk despite the cold and rather indifferent weather
