Guided walk takes in the other Langdale
Bookmark and Share
Visitors to the Langdales area of the Lake District may be most familiar with Great Langdale, the valley offering access to the famous Pikes and routes up to England's highest mountains.

But national park rangers will be leading a walk this month focused on its neighbour little Langdale, on the opposite side of Lingmoor Fell.

Good walking boots have been listed as essential for the trek.

Held on April 24th and beginning at Tilberthwaite Quarry car park near Coniston at 10:30 BST, the trek takes in the valley and Little Langdale Tarn, before heading up to Blea Tarn and climbing to the top of Lingmoor.

Lingmoor has its own small tarn, but Blea Tarn is the most famous of the three, featured in the Wordsworth poem The Excursion.

It is one of three tarns of this name in the national park, the others being above Eskdale and near Thirlmere.

There is also a Bleaberry Tarn and a Blea Water, the latter being the third deepest lake in England at 207 ft.
