The Lake District National Park Authority has unveiled details of a guided walk in Great Langdale.

Starting at Dungeon Ghyll, Langdale by Ridge, Fell and Tarn is a walk that will require good walking boots and a packed lunch, the authority states.

Participants will set out at 09:30 on May 4th. The walk will climb the ridge on the north side of the valley and is 8.4 miles long, with the trek expected to take six hours.

A packed lunch should be brought and those looking to go on the walk may wish to stock up on some energy-providing backpacking food ahead of the event.

Climbing Dungeon Ghyll brings walkers and climbers to the famous Langdale Pikes, which include the nearly sheer cliffs of Pavey Ark, rising out of Stickle Tarn.

The tarn is larger than its original natural size, with a dam being constructed in 1838 to help it provide drinking water for the valley.
