Join us to walk 2nd part of the Ullswater Way Heritage Trail - Pooley Bridge to Howtown, on the west side - our guide, Louise, will talk you through all heritage features and stories of times gone by as you progress along the glorious Ullswater Way Route, launched by the Lake District National Park in April 2016. You will views into the heart of the Lake District mountains, and over the whole of Ullswater, whatever the weather, the mood of the lake is different... and glorious! Walk length 5.5m, but dont be fooled with rolling terrain the ascent to the Cockpit can feel more than you expect!
Your walk wiill start with the Ullswater Steamers Glenridding- Pooley Bridge & return on the steamers from Howtown back to Glenridding.
Our walk with start with an Ullswater Steamer trip to Pooley Bridge for the start of the walk.
Our Explorer WALX are open to all walkers. You are very welcome to bring your Nordic Poles or Trecking Poles if you wish.
Some technical ground will be covered so all terrain shoes with a good trail grip are essential.
Please also bring waterproofs with you, even on a good day, these will act as your emergency layer. We will get a good speed up to do this loop in the allotted time so make sure you come with a water bottle & high energy snack, and a pack to take some layers off as we head off! PLEASE GET IN TOUCH IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF YOUR FITNESS LEVEL OR ABILITY TO WALK ON THE TRICKY LAKELAND TERRAIN AS I'M HAPPY TO HAVE A CHAT ABOUT THIS. You will not be allowed to walk with our group if you do not have the right kit with you and suitable sustenance/drinks/food! Sorry to sound so strict, but we are out with you guys in the fells often with no road close by, so important you come equipped. Our leaders will always have a first aid kit & emergency kit but you must be able to carry your own rucksack for the duration of the walk. From September until end of April, please bring a headtorch on all walks which are due to continue into the afternoon after lunchtime...
