Those keen to go walking and enjoy some Lake District scenery can take part in a guided walk organised by the national park authority on May 18th, entitled Over Latterbarrow to Wray Castle.

Starting at 10:30 BST at Hawkshead, the 6.9-mile route takes 5.5 hours to walk and the advice to those taking part is to bring walking gear and a packed lunch, with the latter being a good reason to get some backpacking food from a Go Outdoors store.

It is described as "a walk through fields and forest, over a splendid summit and down to the shores of Windermere. Return via a castle, a tarn and woodlands".

Participants just need to turn up on the day.
Wray Castle is in fact a 19th century structure, while Blelham Tarn is the most prominent stretch of water in the area, lying just west of Windermere.

Latterbarrow offers views over 360 degrees, as indicated on Ordnance Survey maps.
