Those keen to go walking
in the Lake District can take part in a guided event this coming Sunday (June 13th) run by the national park authority.
Starting at 10:20 BST in the authority's car park in Hawkshead and taking visitors on a nine-mile hike lasting six hours, the walk visits Holme Fell, Black Crag and the beauty spot of Tarn Hows.
The guide to the event notes that walking boots
are essential, while a packed lunch is also required.
Those seeking to ensure this meal gives them the energy boost they need may wish to visit the nearest Go Outdoors store to pick up some backpacking food
While Tarn Hows is a renowned beauty spot with its large tarn and tree plantations, it is a semi-artificial one, as may be hinted at by the name 'The Tarns' seen on Ordnance Survey maps
This name dates back to the 19th century, when the vicinity had three small tarns before the damming of the stream turned them into one larger sheet of water.
