SG Grasmere Walk, 7th September

Published by admin on

A few shots from yesterday’s enjoyable walk at Grasmere. We were dropped off just outside Grasmere and made our way up past Dove Cottage (which was the home of the Lakeland poet William Wordsworth from 1799 to 1808) and then onto the Coffin Trail (so called as it was the route used to take the dead of Rydal to the church in Grasmere for burial) which runs parallel with Rydal Water, giving great views of the lake. We then made our way to Rydal Hall where we had lunch before exploring the gardens. From there we walked past St. Mary’s Church then crossed the busy main road near Badger’s Bar to reach the bridge over the River Rathay. Walking on we skirted Rydal Water then climbed up to Loughrigg Terrace where we had a short break. We then split into two groups, some going down to walk by the side of Grasmere and the others going up a bit more before descending down to meet on the shoreline. We then carried on along the shoreline as far as possible before heading up to the road and then walking back into Grasmere – Simon (click here to see the walk details)
