Mayburgh Henge, Grace Gant

Our first poem of the year: Mayburgh Henge by Grace Gant

Walk on the Coniston shore

This is a short walk that begins with a trip on the Coniston ferry, before returning around the northern shore of the Coniston Water.
All Saints' Church, Hawnby, is a 14th century building located on a hill overlooking the River Rye, to the west of the main part of the village.

Lingmell via the Corridor Route

This walk uses a familiar route to reach an unfamiliar destination. The Corridor Route is normally used for the ascent of Scafell Pike, but is a delightful walk in its own right. This walk uses the same route to reach Lingmell, in many ways a more dramatic summit than Scafell Pike, but inevitably a much quieter one.

Latterbarrow from Hawkshead

This walk takes us to Latterbarrow, an excellent viewpoint for the northern part of the Windermere, starting from the pretty village of Hawkshead.
