Western Lake District

Route: Loweswater

Area: Western Lake District

Date of walk: 15th March 2013

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 5.8 miles

Ascent: 800 feet

It had been raining all morning but started to clear by mid-afternoon, so we decided on a local low level walk. We drove to Loweswater and parked at Maggies Bridge.

We then took the path through High Nook Farm and up along the top of Holme Wood. The weather improved as we went along (in stark contrast to yesterday’s walk) and we had great views of the Solway Firth looking forward and Grasmoor and Whiteside looking back.

The path then took us through Holme Wood and along the shore of Loweswater back to Maggies Bridge.

We’ve done this walk several times before and never tire of it – it was a wonderful couple of hours
