Ambleside stages inaugural outdoor festival
Bookmark and Share
The Lake District village of Ambleside has staged its first annual outdoor festival, offering a range of activities and points of interest for those who like to go walking or hang out with a climbing rope.

Activities held over the long weekend of September 16th to 19th included guided walks up Scafell Pike and Helvellyn, the first and third-highest mountains in England, while rock climbers had a chance to take on some challenging cliffs in the Langdales.

Mountain bike fans had much to enjoy too, with guided rides and clinics on bike maintenance.

And for those keen on learning more about outdoor gear, there were sessions including demonstrations of the use of trekking poles and information on insoles for walking boots.

Those visiting Ambleside may use it as a base for climbing a range of peaks round the Lake District on foot or by rock.

Notable nearby challenges include the Fairfield Horseshoe.
