Those who fancy a low-level trek with a reminder that the Lake District does not start when one gets to Windermere may be interested in a trek led later this month by national park rangers.
Held on April 28th at Wilf's Cafe in Staveley, the walk takes in country lanes between the village and Windermere's railway station.
"Appropriate footwear" has been described as necessary for the event, which will last for four and a half hours and take in six miles of countryside, before the return bus is taken.
Walking equipment and a packed lunch are also listed as essential.
Those visiting Staveley may wish to take a trek up Kentmere, which offers a number of hills and walks, such as beside its tarn and the Nan Bield pass over to Mardale.
South of Staveley lies the Rather Heath area and this is linked to Kendal via a path to Cunswick Tarn and Cunswick Scar, a limestone escarpment offering panoramic views over the town.
