Western Lake District

Route: Loweswater

Area: Western Lake District

Date of walk: 7th March 2014

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 5.8 miles

Ascent; 800 feet

We drove to Loweswater and parked at Maggies Bridge. Dub Beck was in full spate after all the recent rain

After crossing the beck we took the path through High Nook Farm and up along the top of Holme Wood. The weather improved briefly as we went along and we had 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 great couple of hours
