Lakes walk to take in famous tarn

Those who love to go walking in the Lake District may enjoy a climb to Red Tarn below the summit of Helvellyn early next month.

Held as part of the Ullswater Outdoor Festival, it is run by national park rangers and sets off at 10:15 BST.

It climbs via Glenridding Beck to the tarn, before descending via Grisedale and Lanty's Tarn on the way back to the village.

Walking boots are listed as essential for the walk, which is 6.3 miles long and lasts for six hours.

Ullswater's walking festival contains a number of walks which can be enjoyed around the area, as well as chances to explore the lake itself, the second largest in England.

Those buying Ordnance Survey maps of the Lake District may note that this Red Tarn is not the only one in the national park.

A second, smaller tarn of the same name lies between Pick of Blisco and Knott, above Great Langdale and the Wrynose Pass.
