Sun 6 November - Askham to Pooley Bridge to Howtown via Ullswater

A lowish-level walk from Askham to Pooley Bridge (via Heughscar Hill). Catch the 12.10 Ullswater 'Steamers' (ferry) to Howtown (£5.80 single), and return to Askham via lakeside path. If the weathergods cooperate, we should have fine views of the Pennines, Ullswater and the Helvellyn range.

The lakeside path is very muddy, so gaiters and boots are recommended.

Length: approx. 8 miles, 800 feet of ascent

Start time: 09.30 to allow plenty of time to catch the 12.10 ferry from Pooley Bridge

Car share: 08.50 from Morrisons car park, Kendal (I won't be there)

Start point: Askham Village car park, NY513237
