Description: Starting from Grasmere village
we head towards Dove Cottage along the coffin route to Rydal Mount.From there we cross the A591 and walk around
the shores of Rydal and Grasmere back to the village for a well deserved
drink.The garden centre has a nice café.
Start Point: Outside Fish & Chip shop – just a few meters onto the A5092 (Coniston Road) from the new roundabout (beside Greenodd Estuary) on the A590 (G.R. SD 314 827) @ 09.00

Total Ascent: 310 metres (1017 ft.) High Point: Bigland Heights - 175 metres (575 ft.) Time: 7 - 7.5 hours Grade: Strenuous Leader: Dan (on 01229 832 840 [eves.] or 07919 831 237) You MUST let Dan know you are coming by the preceding evening (Saturday), at the latest! If no-one has contacted Dan on Saturday, the walk will be cancelled.
Start - Seathwaite, Borrowdale, at 10am. NY236122.
Grade - strenuous
Distance ~10 miles but subject to change on the day Time - 6-7 hours Initial plan:
Head up Sourmilk Gill to Gillercomb and then on to Green Gable &
Great Gable (option of doubling back to 'bag' Base Brown if anyone is
interested/keen in that), then dropping down to Sty Head. Then the options before us are - pushing on to Scafell Pike; - dropping straight back down the gill towards Stockley Bridge; - going on & dropping down Grains Gill; - heading back down over Glaramara.
The exact route will depend on the weather on the day and on who/how many of us there are, and what we collectively want to do.
If the weather is bad, we may not make the ascent of the gables.
I also want to look at a couple of grade 1 scrambles up Sourmilk Gill and on Seathwaite slabs, but these will be optional.
Leader: Alastair Tel. 07584300306 Please could you contact the leader by Saturday evening if you plan to go on the walk.
Start : There are various places to park for free along the lakeside but the meeting place will be the car park at Glencoyne Bridge which I think is pay and display, I will endeavour to park elsewhere but the car park is a good point to meet. Start Time : 10am Grid Reference : NY 387 188 Description : This is an easier route with a variety of scenery and terrain. On a clear day there are good views across the fells and down the lake. Route: Glencoyne - Seldom seen (row of houses) - Sheffield Pike - Gleridding valley - Glenridding - Glencoyne Distance : Roughly 5 Miles Highest Point : 675 metres Grade : Moderate (the ascent from Glencoyne to Sheffield Pike is the only relatively strenuous part) Time : 4 to 5 Hours NOTE: You must let me know by 6pm ON SATURDAY if you would like to come, I will cancel the walk if there are less than 3 people interested.
