Those who like to go walking in the Lake District can enjoy a trek to Bowscale Tarn in the north-east of the national park on August 7th.

Guided by park rangers, the days starts at Mosedale Bridge at 10:30 BST and the route is eight miles long, with the six-hour adventure taking in the River Caldew as well as the tarn before returning via Roundhouse.

The guide to the event notes good footwear and walking gear are required, so turning up in hiking boots and walking trousers is a must.

Bowscale Tarn has been the subject of legend, with a story that there are two immortal fish living in its waters.

Those who like exploring tarns can make a two-day adventure of a visit to the national park, as the authority has organised a similar trek for August 6th to nearby Scales Tarn, which is perched beneath the exposed ridge of Sharp Edge.
