Third day in the Lakes and the weather was just how you want it at this time of year, sunny and a nice nip in the air, with plenty of colour on the trees to give you some nice photos. To be honest I only took my phone with me but the walk itself was superb and reminded me of the Buttermere walk I did back in February (here). Its a lovely spot and along with Buttermere gives one of the best low level walks in the Lakes for very little effort, and at this time of the year the woodland parts are exceptional.

Start – Grasmere, Red Bank car park
Route – All the way around Grasmere, along the pavements, lanes and footpaths
Distance – 2 1/2 miles    Start time – 12.15pm     Time taken –  1hr 30mins  Highest Point – Probably on the bridge by the weir!!
Weather – Lovely sunshine, some clouds, autumnal

The day before going to Grasmere we had a day in Bowness, this is taken from one of the many boat trips around Windermere, looking to the Fairfield Horseshoe on the left in the distance.


And looking to the south into the sun


This is the Grasmere walk, and I’m here in the woods around White Moss Common having walked the road from Grasmere


Through the woods heading for the bridge, autumn colours all around


Out onto the bridge by the weir. That’s Silver How across Grasmere


The white building at the far end of the lake is Allan Bank (Wordsworths House now run by the National Trust)


It was lovely here as I look to the dip of Dunmail Raise


Fantastic reflections, with Seat Sandal (right) and Steel Fell (left) of Dunmail Raise

One last look as I head along Red Bank Road back to Grasmere village
