Those who love the Lake District will be familiar with the Wainwrights, the 214 fells listed by the famous author.

But for the man known as A.W, one fell - Haystacks - stood out as his favourite, with his ashes scattered there by the shore of Innominate Tarn after his death in 1991.

This tarn and nearby Blackbeck Tarn can be enjoyed in a ranger-led walk on April 28th, which sets off from the Honister National Trust car park at 10:30 BST and lasts for four and a half hours, covering 4.9 miles along the way.

Participants are advised to come with walking equipment and "appropriate footwear", so good walking boots are a must.

Haystacks can be climbed as part of a longer trek along the ridge dividing the Ennerdale and Buttermere valleys, with ascents of High Stile, High Crag and Red Pike offering panoramic views of four lakes: Buttermere, Crummock Water, Loweswater and Ennerdale Water.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801340258-ADNFCR
