Those who fancy taking in a Lake District walk that marked a significant moment in the life of William Wordsworth can do so on May 26th on a route from Grasmere to Grisedale Tarn.

Run by the Lake District National Park authority, the walk begins at 10:30 BST in the village where the famous poet lived, setting out from the Stock Lane car park.

Lasting for six hours and 9.9 miles long, the walk heads up to the Brothers' Parting Stone by the tarn.

This was the point where William last saw his brother, who was subsequently drowned at sea.

Participants are advised that walking boots are essential for the trek, as well as a packed lunch.

The vicinity of Grisedale Tarn marks a high pass through the fells between Grasmere and Patterdale.

Nearby summits include Fairfield, Seat Sandal, Dollywaggon Pike, Catstye Cam and Helvellyn, with the latter being the third highest mountain in England at 3,117 ft.
