Those who love to go walking
in the Lake District may enjoy a guided walk this week.
On April 9th there will be a six-hour trek starting at 10:30 BST that takes in Nab Scar and Alcock's Tarn, near Grasmere.
Beginning in Grasmere village, the route is 6.8 miles long and has been made suitable for people with visual impairments.
The hike will climb through Forest Side to the tarn and Nab Scar, before descending via the coffin route to Rydal.Walking boots
are essential for the walk, the national park noted.
The term coffin route refers to a mountain path over which the bodies of people who had lived in remote locations were carried to be buried in the nearest graveyard.
Visitors to the Lake District keen to don their walking gear
and enjoy the scenery of these historic paths can ramble along several of these, such as the Burnmoor Corpse Road that runs between the valleys of Wasdale and Eskdale.
