Festival walk includes beauty and tragedy

Those who like to go walking in the Lake District may enjoy a trek that takes place later this month as part of the Ullswater Walking Festival.

Run by national park rangers and entitled Kirkstone Descent, the event on September 24th is described as including a descent "into the valley passing a tragic water", a reference to Brothers Water - a lake so named because two brothers drowned there in separate accidents.

The event requires walking equipment and describes good footwear as "essential", so walking boots should be worn.

It starts at 10:00 BST at Glenridding where a bus is caught to the Kirkstone Inn, from where the walk back down into Patterdale begins.

The Inn is a spot from which many mountain walks can begin, with Red Screes on one side and Stony Cove Pike on the other, which means walkers covering both peaks in a day could nip into the pub for a drink in between.
