PICTURES AND TRIP REPORTS FROM MY WALKS IN THE ENGLISH LAKE DISTRICT
I felt really guilty spending Easter in the Lakes without the kids ( although to be fair they did have other things on) but we did manage to make a flying visit to Baysbrown campsite.
The glorious weather from Easter was long gone but it wasn't a bad afternoon when we arrived in Langdale. As tradition requires I took a picture of the pikes.
Then, after the tents were pitched we visited Great Langdale beck.
Jake tests the water temperature. (freezing) but the boys still had a paddle.
Emily tests the rope swing (great fun)
Looking down stream.
Back to the tents for tea.
After a chilly night the day started off fine so we decided a trip up Lingmoor was today's plan
Walking along the river bank I don't think Harry actually hit Tom with that stick
We diverted to look at the quarry.
The kids wanted me to find out if this was for sale!
Looking back over the quarry.
The old level just off the path
Fascinating rocks above the entrance to the level.
Looking up to the top of Lingmoor.
And looking back down over Chapel Stile to the Silver How ridge
A wider view with Fairfield and Helvellyn in the distance.
It had started to spit with rain now so we abandoned our trip to the top and had our picnic on the slate bench/shelter overlooking Elter Water and Windermere
Wetherlam behind Great Intake.
Making our way back down now. We just beat the rain.
