Lakes Parish Council has been discussing the precise route the Olympic torch will take as it passes through the Lake District on June 21st.

The authority finalised details for the event as it visits Ambleside and Grasmere as part of the tour, the Westmorland Gazette reports.

People who like to go walking through the area may wish to stop and see the procession, which takes an open-top bus from Grasmere to Ambleside, before it heads down Wansfell Road and Borrans Road to Waterside and boards a boat on Windermere.

The tour of the national park starts in Keswick and after the boat ride down Windermere, concludes in Bowness.

Walkers visiting other national parks can also see the torch pass through.

These include Loch Lomond and the Trossachs on June 9th, the Cairngorms on June 11th, Snowdonia on May 28th, the Yorkshire Dales on June 20th and the Peak District on June 29th.
