Outdoor Discoveries

It's amazing how things develop. After all, this blog started out as a news section for the rest of the website. With encouragement from readers, it has become a place for relating my countryside wanderings and musings about the world of outdoor activity. Walking, cycling and photography all are part of what I do out-of-doors and, hopefully, they will continue to inspire me to keep adding entries on here. Of course, there needs to be something of interest to you, dear reader, too and I hope that's the case. Thanks for coming.

Linear walking in Lakeland

8th May 2007

Before I left Keswick on Friday, I did a spot of shopping in Booth’s supermarket before I caught an open top bus to Penrith. Booth’s also sells books and magazines as well as the usual supermarket wares and I picked up a Cicerone guide entitled Tour of the Lake District. Being on the look out for linear walks in the Lake District, this slim volume has given me a few ideas. In the main, the sections are relatively short but they can be combined with each other to make a bigger days out. The main route is lower level but higher level options are also presented as are ideas for short walks. Also in the linear walking theme, I found a site dedicated to the Cumbria Way, another lower level amble among the fells, and there were more concerned with the Allerdale Ramble. With these ideas, I should be able to plan some point-to-point strolls for any opportunities that might arise.
