|Walk:||White Moss car park, Loughrigg Fell, Loughrigg Tarn, Red Bank, weir, car park|
|Start Point:||White Moss car park||Grid Ref:||NY 350 065|
|Distance:||5 miles||Ascent:||1,500 feet|
|Weather:||A dull and cold day, hazy in the distance|
Marie, Andrea, Gill and Shep, led by me
|Comments:||A short stretch on Loughrigg Terrace before climbing the engineered path to the summit. A good route down to the tarn with a couple of steeper sections. A varied walk back with the opportunity to paddle in Grasmere - Shep was the only one to partake of the waters! A good half day's walk giving time for shopping in Ambleside afterwards.|

Looks like they have been renewing the bridges round here

Marie chooses a rock to pose on . . .
or perhaps 2 rocks would look better!
