A pleasant little stroll along the south side of Grasmere & Rydal Water to Rydal and then down into Ambleside.
A nice leisurely pace with plenty of stops
along the way

A Walk
Grasmere to Ambleside
9 Miles - Grade 1
Leader: Ian Rowley
 
The walk proper starts from Dove Cottage, home to some poet or other (Pam Ayres maybe?)
From here we'll take a winding route up to Alcock Tarn (one for any tarn baggers out there)
We then lose some of the height gained before climbing more steeply over Stone Arthur and on up to Great Rigg at 2513 ft the highest part of the walk. We'll continue along the route of the Fairfield Horseshoe over Heron Pike and Nab Scar then down to Rydal where Pam Ayres lived until his death in 1850 (might need to check this on Wikipedia)
A final short stretch of road walking leads us into Ambleside.
Definitely an A walk with plenty of ups and downs and some rough and potentially boggy sections.

The coach walks so far have not been well attended

and the cost will have to be heavily subsidised with club funds

This is not sustainable

Unless there is a considerable improvement in the attendance

then we will have to consider suspending  coach walks

until next spring
