Go walking through history in the Lake District
Bookmark and Share
The Lake District National Park is offering a chance to bring their walking gear and go walking through an historic valley.

On Sunday June 6th, a circular route will take in the Kentmere valley, starting at Wilf's Cafe in Staveley at 10.45 BST, with the route being described as one that will track the notable history of the valley.

The walk will last for five and a half hours and is 6.2 miles long and walking boots are essential, organisers have stated.

Another recommendation is to bring a packed lunch and those hoping to get some energy may wish to nip into their nearest Go Outdoors store to get some backpacking food, while hydration packs may be handy if the weather is warm and sunny.

Kentmere's history includes having the original lake of Kent Mere drained in the 19th century so the silicon-containing diatomaceous earth of its bed could be extracted, but a small tarn has subsequently re-formed on the site.
