Walking boots 'essential' for festival hike
Bookmark and Share
Walking boots are essential for a walk in the Lake District being staged tomorrow (September 28th) as part of the Ullswater Outdoor Festival.

The event begins at 10:10 BST in the Aira Force car park before a bus takes walkers to Pooley Bridge and the hike back to the vehicles will cover eight miles, including Gowbarrow Fell and its panoramic views across England's second-largest lake.

People taking part may also wish to bring waterproof jackets in case of rain, which could make the return to the Aira Force gorge more spectacular as it would add volume to the waterfall.

Users of Ordnance Survey maps may find some of the views familiar as a picture of the view from Gowbarrow Fell across Ullswater has been used on its Outdoor Leisure map of the north-east of the national park in the past.

Gowbarrow Park lies beneath the fell beside the lake and is famous as the site where the golden spring blooms inspired William Wordsworth to write his Daffodils poem.
