Description

The very first From Lakeland With Love Instameet will be held on Saturday 21st April 2018 and here are the details.

What is it?

This is probably a little different to other Instameets. The idea is to walk a circular route that’ll take in some beautiful landscape and features with huge amounts of photographic opportunity.

It’s a 6 mile walk but before you panic, it’s low-level with very little difficulty. I can’t say that there are no hills (we’re in the Lakes!) but there’s certainly nothing too strenuous. This isn’t a Royal Marine yomp or anything like that. It’s a gentle amble through a beautiful area with a chance to take some photos of iconic locations. And of course, have a good ‘ol chinwag with your Instabuddies.

The walk will begin in Elterwater Village. We’ll leave the village through the slate quarry and cross into Little Langdale where there are spectacular views of the high fells including Wetherlam, Great Carrs and Cold Pike. We’ll make our way past Little Langdale Tarn and head down to Slaters Bridge. From there we’ll pop up to visit Cathedral Cavern and explore that area. After that we’ll head to the beautiful woods around Colwith and then on to the footbridge that crosses the River Brathay near Skelwith Bridge. We can then either turn right and go and stuff our faces with cake at Chesters or turn left to carry on along the Brathay towards Elter Water and then back into the Britannia Inn for a drink at the end.

Here’s a map of the route, we’ll be walking in an anticlockwise direction.

Where is it?

We’ll meet at the carpark at the east of the village, near the B5343 and the road that goes up Red Bank. This car park is free but fills up quite quickly. You can see the car park marked as the start point on the route map above.

What do I need?

  • Waterproofs - As it's April there's a good chance it'll rain at some point (if not at all points!)

  • Food and drink - We might stop off somewhere along the way for a bite to eat or you can eat on the hoof while snapping away!

  • Some money for a cake at Chesters or a drink in the Britannia Inn at the end (or both!)

  • And of course your camera!

If it rains, we'll still go ahead but obviously if there's a storm and travel problems then it might need to be rescheduled to a different weekend. Keep an eye on Instagram (https://instagram.com/fromlakelandwithlove) for any announcements nearer the time.

I really hope you can all make it. It should be a lovey day out in the lakes, armed with cameras, drones and butties!

Thanks very much,

Glenn
