Lake District Adventures: Walla Crag and Ashness Bridge

9 August 2019


On our week off in July, Dan and I set off for a day trip back to the Lake District for a walk around Derwent Water in Keswick. It's been nearly three months since our first ever week away in the Lake District, a holiday that we'll always cherish, so coming back to the Lake District meant so much to us. Wanting to challenge ourselves a little more, we chose a walk with a steeper accent, reaching to 379m. It was a fantastic walk, with spectacular views across Derwent Water and the impressive peaks of Cat Bells, a fell reaching to 451m, in the distance. We wandered through mossy woodlands, walked through a jungle of ferns, stopped at the beautiful Ashness Bridge and climbed all the way to the Walla Crag viewpoint. We made a slight mistake at the start of our walk and managed to walk the route from back to front, even so it was still a fantastic walk!
