Although the region and the name suggests, one filled with bodies of water, it’s the fells and walking up and down them that the Lake District is as famous for. With a renewed love for walking, visiting more of what is on the doorstep and visiting the amazing places we have in the UK and the growing appeal of the great outdoors, it’s no wonder the Lake District is busier than ever.
It’s now easier than ever to find walking routes thanks to social media and the internet. It’s also easier to find amazing images of views and routes too enticing even the most sceptical walkers!
From leisurely low level walks to full day routes taking in multiple fells, once people start fell walking, they’re hooked. Even going up one of the smaller fells walkers are rewarded by even more scenery and even more stunning views. Right in the heart of the Lake District National Park are the Langdale fells. In the area you’ll find a walk for any ability but the views keep getting bigger and better the further you go up. From the Langdale fells it is possible to see England’s highest peak, Scafell Pike and the Cumbrian coast beyond also the Ambleside fells and on a good day even Morecambe Bay.
When walking on the hills, planning and great care must be employed. Whilst objects of great beauty, the weather can make the hills dangerous places. Be prepared with the correct clothing map, compass, food and water and check the Lake District Weather Line for the latest fell conditions.
