Those keen to go walking
in the Lake District can undertake a guided walk run by national park rangers in Little Langdale.
Starting in the National Trust Car Park village of Elterwater at 10:30 BST on Saturday (May 22nd), the walk heads up and over Lingmoor Fell, which separates Great Langdale from Little Langdale.
Descending from the fell via Side Pike, it then takes in Blea Tarn before returning via Little Langdale to the village.
The park authority is advising anyone undertaking this 8.4 mile trek to bring walking boots
and a packed lunch.
One way to ensure a packed lunch has the energy required for the walk may be to get some high-energy backpacking food
from the nearest Go Outdoors store.
Blea Tarn is a noted beauty spot in the national park and was the subject of the Wordsworth poem "the excursion", although his description of the vicinity as a "quite treeless nook" is out of date after pines and rhododendrons were planted by its shore.
