Hello. I’m sorry I don’t know who you are.

Please type your surname and hit Tab:

This site is intended to be the main source of information for our walking holiday in the Lake District this spring. I want it be accurate and helpful, so if you see anything that looks wrong or that you can’t understand please let me know, and I will make any appropriate changes.

It is organised into sections which you can access by using the buttons on the left. Please read all the sections. Most links in the text take you off this site. Where they refer to car parks, they will give you a map with the car park at the centre. In all other cases, they will take you to the websites of the appropriate organisations.

There are two possible walks for Tuesday. My intention has always been to walk near Keswick, but in the December floods the main road from Rydal to Keswick was destroyed. So far there is no clear indication of when it will be rebuilt. The alternative route over the Kirkstone Pass is slow, and is probably best avoided, so I have devised a walk at Tarn Hows. If we learn anything about the road, I will update this site.

Printed Copies

If you want some printed information to remind you what we are doing on each day, you can get this by clicking on the Printable Timetable button. The Printable Navigation button will give you a document of navigation instructions for drivers. You can get maps and profiles of our walks by clicking on the Printable Maps button. As I may make changes to these documents, it’s probably best not to print them just yet.

Those of you who are using iPads and Android tablets may find you have no way of opening these documents. These devices are normally sold without any program to read pdf files, but you should be able to download several suitable programs, such as Adobe Acrobat.
