Walk visits Wainwright's favourite
Bookmark and Share
A guided walk in the Lake District will take in Alfred Wainwright's favourite fell on June 30th, which may be enjoyed by those wearing walking boots.

Starting at 10:30 BST in the Honister National Trust car park, the walk heads up Haystacks, featuring Blackbeck and Innominate Tarns as well as panoramic views over Buttermere.

The guide to the event states "Appropriate footwear [is] essential" and "walking gear [is] required," which means those coming along should put on walking boots and have the correct clothing for mountain conditions.

Haystacks actually has a third tarn - a small one on its summit - although the banks of Innominate Tarn are where the famous author had his ashes scattered.

Walkers in this area keen to take on higher peaks may continue along the ridge to summits over 2,000 ft up including High Stile, High Crag and Red Pike, with this walk offering further views up the valley beyond Buttermere to its other lakes of Crummock Water and Loweswater.
