A short walk this morning to Latterbarrow from Colthouse close to Hawkshead. This walk follows Wainwright’s Latterbarrow chapter in his book ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’, page 84. The large obelisk on the summit of Latterbarrow is clearly visible from Hawkshead.
Colthouse lies a short distance east of Hawkshead, the walk starts outside Colthouse on the road heading north west. The bridleway starts at a gate and the track, which is clearly defined, passes through another gate and a lily tarn lies to the right.
