An Elterwater round
A walk - once again in the excellent company of the recenty-returned Jim Mercer - round the very fine scenery of the lower-lying parts of the Elter Water and Little Langdale areas. The route began by going southwards from Elterwater village along the path by Elter Water towards Skelwith Bridge, and then from there west to Colwith Force. From here further entry was made into Little Langdale, up to Slater's bridge. A visit at this point to nearby 'Cathedral Cave' (a disused slate quarry) was eschewed, however, due to mutiny in the ranks (but a photo of it is included from a previous occasion)!Return was in a north-west direction, (temptingly close at the start to the Three Shires Inn!), characterised mainly by a long, gentle downhill stroll back to Elterwater. On arrival back at the village, the outing was capped by an heroic conquest of the grassy knoll on which the Britannia Inn sits, and the services of Inn itself duly availed of, thereby rounding off a great day out in the proper manner! Distance: 6.5 miles/10.5 km.
