5 Walks In The Yorkshire Dales

 

 Lake District Walks

There are some spectacular walks in the Lake District. This is England's largest National Park covering around 885 square miles. It includes Scafell Pike – England’s highest mountain and Wastwater - its deepest lake.

I have heard it described as “Switzerland in miniature” which might be stretching things a bit but it is an area of tremendous scenic beauty.

Its location on the north west coast of England, coupled with its mountainous geography, means it is subject to high rainfall and Seathwaite in Borrowdale is the wettest inhabited place in England.

The area has strong associations with the early 19th century poetry and writings of William Wordsworth and the Lake Poets.

Lake District walks provide perhaps the most dramatic walking in England but this brings with it a need for respect for the terrain and weather which can do unexpected things. I have suffered hailstorms in July at altitude!  

Scroll down to see Lake District walks.
