Those who like to go walking
somewhere historic while enjoying dramatic mountain scenery may find the combination they are looking for in a Lake District guided walk this month.
On October 25th the Tarn Beck and Seathwaite Tarn trek will start in Broughton in Furness at the town square and the five-hour, 4.9 mile trek will follow Tarn Beck up to Seathwaite Tarn.
Along the way will be a chance to see medieval longhouse sites and Bronze Age cairns.
The national park authority guide to the event has stated good footwear is needed, so walking boots
should be worn along with outdoor jackets to deal with the autumnal weather.
Seathwaite Tarn is one of several mountain lakes in the corries beneath the Old Man of Coniston and one of two that have been enlarged by damming, along with Levers Water.
Smaller tarns nearby include Goat's Water, Low Water and Blind Tarn.
