Those who like to grab a walking pole
and get out in the wilds have been invited to a guided walk near Buttermere by the Lake District National Park Authority.
On May 13th, rangers will lead the Secret Valley of the Bluebells walk up Rannerdale, starting from the Fish Inn at Buttermere village at 10:30 BST.
Lasting for two hours and taking in 3.5 miles of scenery, the walk will explore the valley and its flora before returning to the village.
The authority has advised that appropriate footwear should be worn and a packed lunch brought, so walking boots
may be a good idea, along with backpacking food
Walks around Buttermere include one that circumnavigates the entire lake shore.
This path includes a tunnel cut through solid rock to enable walkers to pass through a rocky outcrop jutting out into the lake on the eastern shore.
Walkers in the vicinity can also enjoy walking along the shores of Crummock Water and Loweswater, with this being the only valley in the national park with three lakes.
