Sun 8 Jan - Rydal/Grasmere New Members Walk

Rydal Water-Grasmere
A historical walk along the famous ‘coffin route’
A great opportunity for new members to come along and meet the group

The walk is relatively easy, but quite long. It starts at Rydal water where we walk alongside the lake and past Rydal caves. We then head to Grasmere for a tea stop and return via the Coffin route which passes both Dove cottage and Rydal Mount.

Walk time: 3-4 hours (depending on how long we stop in Grasmere)
Distance: approx. 6 miles
Highest point: 951 ft (it’s mainly low-level)
Grade: 2

Opportunity for a drink afterwards at the Badger Bar (Rydal)

Start time: 10am Pelter Bridge Car Park (free), Rydal Water NY 355062 (Turn off the A591 just before Rydal, and then to your right once over the hump back bridge; to your left is a car park). N.B. If this is full, try the Cricket club car park (near Ambleside)

Leader: Charlotte (+ Richard) 07580722866
