North West Lake District

Route: Ennerdale

Area: North West Lake District

Date of walk: 24th April 2013

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 7.2 miles

Ascent: 600 feet

There was driving rain and low cloud in the morning so I abandoned my planned fell walk. The weather cleared slightly in the afternoon, though the clouds were low, and for this reason I decided on a low level walk round Ennerdale

Ennerdale is out on a limb and usually much quieter than the other lakes, and this proved to be the case today

I parked in the free car park at Bleach Green and walked anti-clockwise round the lake

The weather improved as the afternoon went on, although the clouds continued to obscure the higher fells
