Nestled in Cumbria in north western England, lies the Lake District, one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Europe. A combination of geology and glaciation is responsible for the area`s breath taking scenery – towering mountains, u-shaped lake filled valleys, a myriad of small and large tarns etc. Home to England`s largest national park (2000 square kilometres), highest mountain (Scafell Pike at 978 metres), and largest and deepest lakes (Windermere and Wastwater respectively), the area is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. And since the summer of 2017 it is a Unesco World Heritage site, and not before time!

We will do three hills walks for anyone able for three walks in three days! These hopefully will comprise of two A walks and one B walk. We`ll wait `til closer to the time to decide on our exact schedule. Here is a description of the walks but a map of the Lake District would be a help to anyone interested in knowing a little more about them in advance e.g. the excellent ordnance survey maps Harvey`s Lakeland West and Harvey`s Lakeland Central.
