Those who fancy putting on some thermal socks and walking off all that festive food on Boxing Day may find the ideal trek on offer in the Lake District.

A guided walk organised by National Park rangers starts at 10:30 GMT at Coniston Tourist Information Centre, offering a gentle five hour walk covering 5.9 miles as it heads up via Yewdale to the picturesque beauty spot of Tarn Hows.

The walk then returns to the village by Monk Coniston Hall.

Walkers will need to come with appropriate footwear and walking gear, the guide states, so winter jackets may be highly advisable as well as waterproofs and hiking boots.

The tarn at Tarn Hows is labelled on Ordnance Survey maps as "The Tarns", which reflects its semi-artificial origin as three smaller bodies of water enlarged into one larger lake by the damming of a stream.

Nearby Yew Tree Tarn is also artificial, but Wharton Tarn - which may be visited on the way to Monk Coniston - is natural.
