Grange to Seathwaite

Grange to Seathwaite and back

North Western Lake District

Route: Grange 

Area: North Western Lake District

Date of walk: 7th February 2013

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 9.9 miles

Ascent: 1,100 feet

The weather was overcast. We parked at Grange and followed the Allerdale Ramble over the shoulder of Castle Crag and along a lovely elevated footpath (approx 800 feet) to Seatoller. We then continued to Seathwaite, the wettest place in England, though it kept dry for us that day. This marked the furthest point from the start.

We returned along the other side of Borrowdale via Rosthwaite.

It was a beautiful walk even though the weather was dull.
