WALK OF THE MONTH - a hilltop view of Derwentwater

13 November 2018

Any Lake District regular knows Derwentwater. It dominates the town of Keswick, and the view from the surrounding tops. This route, though, starts from Grange at its southern end and picks a route over the lower tops, as well as the lakeside itself, to give a variety of perspectives on this perennial favourite. There is a good bus service from Keswick to Grange throughout the year.
