Lake District offering Beacon of light walking

Those who like to go walking in the Lake District without clambering up its high mountains may enjoy a trek to a popular tarn in the south-west of the national park.

Led by national park rangers, the hike starts in Broughton-in-Furness at 10:30 BST on June 11th, covering 6.5 miles over six hours.

The first port of call is the Giant's Grave ancient settlement at Heathwaite, before continuing on to Beacon Tarn in the Furness Fells.

Walkers should wear "appropriate footwear" for the event, the guide notes, which may be a good prompt to come in hiking boots.

Beacon Tarn was made famous as Trout Tarn in Arthur Ransome's children's book Swallows and Amazons Forever and its notable features include an inflowing stream just a few feet away from its outflow at its southern end.

Also nearby is Lang Tarn below Blawith Knott, said to be the smallest named tarn in the national park.
