LAKE DISTRICT PAGE 5 - 22/06/03
This is the last page of pictures taken in the Lake District and include photographs from Windermere and a walk from Dob Gill near Thirlmere.
|On the left Lake Windermere taken at Bowness-on-Windermere. Centre and right photos were taken at the Lake District Visitors Centre at Brockhole on the shores of Lake Windermere.|
|Brockhole National Park Centre is located on the main A591 road on the eastern side of Lake Windermere about halfway between Ambleside and the town of Windermere. Centre and right are photos taken on a walk on the eastern side of Thirlmere.|
|More photos of our walk near Thirlmere, we park at Dob Gill Car Park. Its a steep climb up to Harrop Tarn, (left photo), there are good views of Thirlmere and across to Helvellyn on the western side of the water. It's not easy walking especially on our route back down to the car park but with the views, Harrop Tarn and waterfalls it is definitely worthwhile!|
|All three photos above are from a walk along the River Brathay, parking at a National Trust car park along the B5343 road we walk alongside the river past Elterwater lake and as far as the small village of Elterwater. The walk is flat with good paths and was approximately 3 miles in length there and back.|
|The photo on the left is Stockghyll Force waterfall, located a short walk to the east of Ambleside. Centre and left were taken at Coniston. The boat in the centre picture is the Gondola first launched in 1859. Coniston is the third largest lake in the Lake District.|
