Area: North Western Lake District

Date of walk: 18th October 2013

Walkers: Andrew Gilly and David

Distance: 4.3 miles

Ascent: 250 feet

We decided on a low level walk today as the weather forecast was poor, and chose a walk we’ve done many times before but never tire of

We parked at Nichol End Marine and climbed aboard the Keswick Launch, disembarking at the Lodore Falls Hotel on the south end of Derwent Water

The path back along the shore took us through Manesty Park and Brandelhow Park which are well stocked with magnificent specimen trees. The autumn colours were showing well, and there were masses of mushrooms to be seen in the woodland

We arrived back at Nichol End just as it started to rain, and just in time to enjoy bacon and egg butties for lunch
