A chance to swan around in walking boots

Those keen to go walking in the Lake District can enjoy a guided walk run by national park rangers on September 10th that takes in the area's own swan lake.

It starts at the National Trust car park in Elterwater Village at the entrance to the Langdales, passing the lake of that name and then Loughrigg Tarn before ascending to the top of Loughrigg Fell.

Beginning at 10:30 BST, it lasts for six hours and is 6.9 miles long, with walking boots being listed as an essential requirement.

Elter Water is the nearest the national park has to a "Swan Lake", as Elter is an old norse word for swan.

Loughrigg Fell, which is one of the Wainwrights, offers panoramic views and these include vistas across five of the main lakes, with Windermere, Esthwaite Water and Coniston Water to the south and Grasmere and Rydal Water just below the fell on its north side.
