Kentmere Round

12 Miles Grade 1 

Leaders: Janet Nicholson - Ian Rowley

Start: Sands 7.30am



One of the Lake District's finest horseshoe walks, not technically difficult but it's a strenuous test of fitness with plenty of ups and downs. The walk goes over Yoke; Ill bell; Froswick; Mardale Ill bell Harter Fell  Kentmere Pike and Shipmans Knott and should take around 7-8 hours taken at a steady pace.
Parking in Kentmere is very restricted but I have checked with the owner of Maggs Howe B&B and the seasonal car park  near Low Bridge will be open . Even so can I ask that folk car share and let me or Janet know if you are intending to join the walk.
Cars will need to leave the Sands by 7.30 am.  Back to Carlisle (hopefully) by around 6.30pm
Given the distance and the remoteness the walk will be weather dependant.
Ian and Janet

 Meet at RSPB Car Park at Hallbankgate for 10.00.  Or the Sands at 09.15.
I have space for 3.
Circular walk around Tindale Tarn and the RSPB Reserve.  Pretty flat but could now be boggy in parts following rain.    I’m checking out the Hub Community cafe for tea and scones after.   
Please note:  I cannot be held responsible for Cumbria CC closing roads and not putting up Diversion signs.
