LAKE DISTRICT PAGE 1 - 15/06/03
There has been a lack of recent updates to the site as we have been away in the Lake District for the last couple of weeks. This page includes photographs from the trip although I have not included details of every route on the various walks but there is a description against each picture.

|The Holker Garden Festival, 1st June 2003, held in the grounds of Holker Hall, Cark-in-Cartmel. The Festival is held each year at the estate which is the home of Lord and Lady Cavendish and is near Grange-over-Sands to celebrate the gardens, countryside and local foods and crafts.|
|Starting at the National Trust Car Park at White Moss Common we walk towards Grasmere Lake, the short path towards the lake can easily combined with walks to Grasmere Village and Rydal Mount where William Wordsworth once lived as well as Loughrigg Fell with great views across Lake Windermere.|
|The walk takes you alongside the river Rothay that links Grasmere and Rydal Water which can be found on your left as you follow the path.|
|Across the other side of the main A591 from the White Moss Common car park we walk up a steep slope to a small tarn with good views over Rydal Water including Heron Island. On the right a small mouse, spotted in the rocks.|
