Deepdale may live up to its name as it snakes between high fells in the eastern part of the Lake District, with the national park authority holding a guided walk in the valley layer this month.
On September 30th, the walk will begin at Patterdale Hotel at 10:00 BST, requiring walking boots
and a packed lunch for participants taking on the 10.5 mile walk.
The event is part of the Ullswater Outdoor Festival
and will feature an ascent up the pass of Deepdale Hause to Grisedale Tarn, before descending back to Patterdale.
Participants may also wish to wear a fleece as the weather may be much colder by the end of this month as autumnal weather starts to arrive and the days get shorter, although the six and a half hour schedule will ensure it is still very light when this trek ends.
The path up to Grisedale Tarn can be used as a pass to Grasmere, home of William Wordsworth and it is beside the mountain lake that the Brothers' Parting stone stands, as it was there he said farewell to his sibling before the latter went to sea and was drowned in a storm.
