Tuesday 16 July. I fancied an easier walk today so I decided to revisit a route that I did a few years ago with Bea & Amanda. I delayed my start from Elterwater until 08:45 so that I didn’t arrive too early at the Skelwith Bridge café. This was my one and only stop for a welcome bacon butty and a mug of tea. Refreshed & refuelled I then made my way to Colwith Force which, although in full flow, was somewhat obscured by the summer foliage. A few more sunny & leisurely miles saw me passing through the Elterwater quarry before walking alongside Great Langdale Beck on the way back to the car. The walk was 6.5 miles with just over 1,000ft of ascent.
