Bowkerstead, Grizedale

Today we did part of the Forestry Commission’s High Bowkerstead trail, south of Grizedale. The forests were alive today with so much to discover and explore. The foxgloves and thistles were making an appearance, along with hundreds of butterflies, slugs, beetles, spiders and ants!

Sale Fell, Bassenthwaite

Sale Fell, at the north end of Bassenthwaite in the Lake District is a great fell for little legs! And it’s a Wainwright, with the peak at 359 metres (1177 feet). We did a 2 mile circular walk (option to extend to 3 miles), on mostly wide open grassy paths. It offers spectacular views of the northern fells, Bassenthwaite Lake and Derwentwater.
