Another fantastic week in the Lake District last week and it started here in the Northern Lakes on Binsey. I’d driven up from an overnight stop in Wigan and into rain, it was forecast to brighten in the afternoon so I took time to stop in Keswick, grab some lunch before heading across to Binsey. My week lodgings where in the Western Lakes in a lovely little village called Dean (The Royal Yew pub is superb) and Binsey provided a good leg stretch as well as being convenient for the A66 and the short drive across to Dean. Timing was good as the sun was out by the time I started and the cloud started to lift from all but the highest fells during the walk. It was a nice and easy start to the week.
