Lakes walk takes in pass

The Scandale Pass in the Lake District is the subject of a walk being staged by the national park authority.

Visitors donning their walking boots and rucksacks can set off from outside the Patterdale hotel on a walk that takes in part of the pass and then ascends to the summit of High Hartsop Dodd, before descending back into the valley past Brother's Water.

Starting at 10:00 BST on May 1st, the 6.8-mile route is a six-hour walk and as well as walking gear, those turning up are advised to bring a packed lunch, which could contain some backpacking food.

Those keen to walk the whole of the Scandale pass will find it offers an alternative north-south route that runs in parallel with the Kirkstone pass, but unlike the latter does not have a road.

In his book The Lakeland Mountain Passes, Alfred Wainwright said that this made Scandale a preferable option as walkers could enjoy the peace and solitude of the trek.
