The extreme wet weather made an unwelcome return again yesterday and many roads in the area were flooded with flood warnings also being given for many areas in Cumbria. I visited both Love the Lakes shops this morning and was good to see that all the roads were open and largely clear of water. There was some localised flooding and I took some photos of these areas on my journey. Eventually I ended up in Borrowdale for a short walk up to the lowest Wainwright of them all, Castle Crag.
A few photos taken on the way to Love the Lakes, Bowness…
Today’s walk takes place in ‘the loveliest square mile in Lakeland’ according to Wainwright, in Borrowdale up to Grange Fell and across the valley to Castle Crag (incidentally the lowest Wainwright and the only one less than 1000′). It certainly was lovely today as the sun shone and it was very warm with the merest breeze; a real English summer’s day.
