This is a pleasant lower (ish) level walk, we don't ascend any of the major peaks. rather we largely walk along the valleys and beside the lake.


This is a reccy walk. so there maybe the possibility of entertaining detours into pubs/cafes and wrong footpaths.

Walk leader will be meeting at the 'meet location': Ferguson House, Blackfriars Road, Salford, M3 7AG at 9am.

Waypoints:

We head down to Patterdale and cross the valley. We rise up to Boredale House. We walk around Place Fell (657m, although we don't ascend it). We then head along to Boredale and Boredale Beck.

We head around Hallin Fell, before heading to Howtown Wyke Ferry Terminal.

We then turn South between the lovely Ullswater and Place Fell before returning to Glenridding.

There is an option to head across Martindale Common, along Howe Grain before rejoining the main path at the base of Hallin Fell (this'll be an extra 150m ascent and a mile or two).
