Lakes walk something of an excursion
Bookmark and Share
The Lake District National Park Authority is holding a walk next month that takes in some of the tarns and fells around the valley of Little Langdale.

It takes place on September 12th and will begin at 10:30 BST at the Tilberthwaite Quarry car park near Coniston.

Walking boots are described as being essential for the six-hour, 8.1-mile trip, which then heads up to Little Langdale and also climbs Lingmoor Fell, returning over Slater Bridge.

Participants have been advised to bring a packed lunch and those heading on the walk may wish to consider a waterproof jacket in case it rains.

The tarns in the vicinity include Little Langdale Tarn, Lingmoor Tarn and Blea Tarn.

William Wordsworth wrote about the last of these bodies of water in his poem The Excursion, although his description of the location as a "quite treeless nook" is now out of date, as there is a plantation of conifers and rhododendrons on the tarn's western shore.
