Walk: Derwentwater

Mon, 06 May 2013 16:20:53 +0100

It is right that most people celebrate our Lake District but few realise the importance of the rivers which feed the lakes.

Walk: Derwentwater

Tue, 02 Apr 2013 15:07:16 +0100

Between now and the end of May is the ideal time to enjoy a walk in the Lake District.

Walk: Kirkby Malham

Tue, 22 Jan 2013 17:28:47 +0000

Last week I had two letters from readers asking if there were any winter walks in the Malham area.

Walk: Around Orrest Head

Mon, 07 Jan 2013 17:28:16 +0000

This is without doubt the most accessible and popular walk in the whole of the Lake District.

Around Grizedale Forest

Mon, 10 Sep 2012 16:59:50 +0100

I planned this walk to link with the Countryfile TV programme on Grizedale, now open to the public — though this was once not the case.

Grasmere Walk

Thu, 04 Aug 2011 15:57:53 +0100

THIS week I decided to make a longer journey than usual into the Lake District to find an almost forgotten tarn much loved by William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy.

Loweswater walk

Wed, 12 Jan 2011 15:21:09 +0000

Following my recent stroll around Buttermere – and keeping a wary eye open for the weather – I decided to enjoy another relatively level walk, this time around Loweswater.

Bowland walk

Tue, 23 Nov 2010 15:18:00 +0000

The Stocks Reservoir area, in the Trough of Bowland, is the breeding ground for the rare hen harrier.

Walking Great and Little Burney

Fri, 22 Oct 2010 11:30:00 +0100

Great Burney stands to the north of the A5092. The fell slope you can see from the road involves a steepish climb but when you arrive at the top, you can see a delightful path continuing on and then gently up to the cairn on the summit. The views from here are superb and well worth the effort. The walk then descends to the fell road, easy at first and then through tiresome bracken in high summer. It continues through the countryside to Tottlebank, a lovely quiet corner of Cumbria. The return is made along the Cumbria Way and then skirts the eastern slopes of Great Burney.

Ravenstonedale and Smardale Gill walk

Wed, 06 Oct 2010 15:14:01 +0100

I HAVE recently enjoyed a number of walks along the many now disused railway tracks in Cumbria.

Ashness Bridge Walk

Tue, 07 Sep 2010 14:58:18 +0100

OF all the walks I have covered in this series few are more beautiful or more historic than this.

Coniston walk

Thu, 29 Jul 2010 15:10:53 +0100

JOHN Ruskin was born in 1819, the son of a wealthy London sherry and wine merchant.

Coniston walk

Thu, 29 Jul 2010 14:16:07 +0100

This walk is longer and more strenuous than most I have described. It is, however, well worth the effort but it does need careful planning and should be done slowly and on a good clear day.

Broughton Square walk at Broughton-in-Furness

Fri, 09 Jul 2010 13:00:00 +0100

I ALWAYS thought I had walked all the footpaths around Broughton-in-Furness but just recently I re-walked a path I had tried once and found it so wet and rough I decided it wasn’t suitable to recommend to other walkers.

Kentmere walk

Tue, 20 Apr 2010 17:18:03 +0100

THIS is a lovely walk through some of the Lake District’s finest scenery.

Langwathby walk

Mon, 16 Nov 2009 19:24:23 +0000

THERE can be few more spectacular settings for a pub than the Shepherds Inn, which stands in splendid isolation of the village green at Langwathby.

Glencoyne walk

Mon, 02 Nov 2009 17:44:45 +0000

THIS is a dramatic walk with a long ascent, then a wet descent followed by a very stony one.

Little Salkeld walk

Sun, 18 Oct 2009 17:36:29 +0100

Irecently described a walk around the stone circle at Castlerigg, near Keswick.

Latterbarrow walk

Wed, 14 Oct 2009 17:03:43 +0100

THE lovely fell, Latterbarrow, 803 feet high, lies between Windermere and Esthwaite Water.

Castlerigg walk

Mon, 05 Oct 2009 14:42:47 +0100

Pass through a metal gate leading directly to the Stone Circle.

Coniston walk

Tue, 15 Sep 2009 16:14:54 +0100

On days when Coniston is overflowing with visitors the hamlet of Torver to the south provides something of a quiet haven.

Hawkshead walk

Mon, 10 Aug 2009 17:37:34 +0100

Whatever the time of year, Hawkshead is busy but this gentle stroll finds undiscovered paths, extensive woodlands and tiny rippling streams that are full of wildlife.

Kirkby Stephen walk

Mon, 03 Aug 2009 17:15:38 +0100

This very gentle undulating stroll leads through heavenly countryside as befits the name of Eden Valley.

Burgh-by-Sands walk

Mon, 01 Jun 2009 15:35:25 +0100

Just occasionally I go further afield for my strolls but this is the first time I have ventured so far North.

Muker walk

Mon, 20 Apr 2009 18:02:22 +0100

If ever a village is unspoiled then it is Muker, which on no account should ever be rushed.

Keswick walk

Thu, 16 Apr 2009 17:02:37 +0100

Although an important medieval market town, Keswick is largely a product of Victorian tourism.

Beacon Fell walk

Wed, 08 Apr 2009 09:28:02 +0100

Although Beacon Fell is only 873 feet above sea level its summit dominates the West Lancashire plain, with Blackpool Tower clearly visible on a good day, while to the east Bowland hills are laid out in all their splendour.

Rochdale walk

Mon, 30 Mar 2009 15:32:12 +0100

There is no doubt that the most famous person produced by Rochdale was the one and only Gracie Fields — but there are many others which spring into the minds of those who love Lancashire as much as I do.

Settle walk

Wed, 25 Mar 2009 15:08:50 +0000

For Lancastrians who do not mind risking the occasional visit to Yorkshire then strolls around the market town of Settle will take a lot of beating.

Bolton walk

Mon, 16 Mar 2009 15:56:43 +0000

In the days before Lancashire Cotton was crowned king of the textile world a small village called Bolton-on-the-Moors made a modest living from the handloom weaving of wool and from farming.

Kirkby Malham walk

Wed, 11 Mar 2009 17:44:42 +0000

When people from East Lancashire think about going from a stroll in the Yorkshire Dales, they often finish up at the Yorkshire Dales Park Information Centre — and quite right too.

Saltaire walk

Tue, 27 Jan 2009 17:06:36 +0000

IN 2001, Saltaire was declared a World Heritage site and is one of the most fascinating of planned industrial villages.

Blackpool walk

Mon, 01 Dec 2008 17:12:04 +0000

The whole of Blackpool revolves around fun for people of all ages with the Pleasure Beach, three piers and exciting entertainment.

Chorlton walk

Tue, 25 Nov 2008 18:23:06 +0000

There has long been a saying in Lancashire which tells us to “waste nowt”.

Hollingworth walk

Mon, 10 Nov 2008 15:28:29 +0000

THE ROCHDALE Canal was a brave enterprise, completed in 1804.

Moses Gate walk

Sat, 01 Nov 2008 13:10:00 +0000

DESCRIBED as a countryside oasis set among an urban setting, Moses Gate is 750 acres (300 hectares) of kiddie-friendly beauty.

Fairhaven walk

Mon, 27 Oct 2008 16:44:00 +0000

This easy circular walk offers seaside views around a lake created by an old flooded golf course.

Beacon Fell walk

Tue, 21 Oct 2008 16:01:10 +0100

THIS is a wild and wonderful place with several paths which lead through the conifer woodland.

Crook of Lune walk

Mon, 06 Oct 2008 14:52:19 +0100

A disused railway line, two historic bridges, a sweeping curve of a river and a pretty stretch of woodland make this a walk to remember.

Aysgarth Falls walk

Mon, 29 Sep 2008 17:23:57 +0100

From East Lancashire the most attractive route is from Skipton and Bolton Abbey (A65).

Ingleton walk

Mon, 15 Sep 2008 17:18:26 +0100

The route cuts through glens classified as Sites of Special Scientific Interest and acrross the bed of a former lake, ground out by glacial action.

Jumbles reservoir walk

Tue, 26 Aug 2008 14:43:02 +0100

Jumbles reservoir looks as if it was built in Victorian times but was in fact constructed in the 1960s and opened by the Queen in 1971.

Maryport walk

Mon, 18 Aug 2008 15:53:26 +0100

A circular walk around Maryport harbour, taking in a busy harbour that once had huge strategic importance, this is a walk by the sea with a difference which will appeal to all ages.

Lancaster walk

Mon, 04 Aug 2008 16:44:37 +0100

Most people drive along the M6 and see the Ashton Memorial above the road without realising that it can be visited.
