Love the Lakes, Bowness-on-Windermere - Post Knott -
Love the Lakes, Bowness-on-Windermere
Distance: 1.6 miles
Total Ascent: 145 metres
Time Taken: 40 minutes
Weather: Cold and misty. 1oC.
I could see there would be a temperature
inversion over Windermere this morning so after checking out conditions
at the south on the Gummer's How road, I headed for the shop and from
there took a short walk up to Brant Fell. It is easy to forget about the
places on your doorstep sometimes and today was a good day to explore
Brant Fell a little with the added bonus of being above the cloud.
On the way to Bowness I could tell there would be an
inversion over Windermere so I took a short detour up the Gummer's How
road to check conditions.
The view to the south-west with The Hoad monument at
Summer House Knott across Lakeside.
After the short drive to Bowness via Love the Lakes, I
walked the short distance up Brantfell Road.
Heading for Post Knott and rising through the mist.

Brant Fell ahead.
There was even a bit of blue sky around but not much
sunshine was getting through.
It remained cold and frozen throughout the walk
and the conditions weren't the best for getting a good photo.
