Keswick and Derwentwater

One of the most popular destinations in the English Lake District is Keswick on Derwentwater.  I recently saw a Tweet commenting on how little geography people in London know.  Someone on the BBC had said, “Keswick near Kendal”.  Perhaps they should drive (or take the bus) from Kendal to Keswick.  It is a lovely scenic route.  The road has been repaired to a very high standard following last winter’s floods.

A recent outing to Keswick included a walk each way along the shore of Derwentwater, through Hope Park and round the town, where the Go Herdwick ewe and lamb trails were in full swing.  I have mentioned this art event here and here.  It is a fund-raising project for the Calvert Trust.  I bought the two guides to the trails.  One is a map with all the ewes pictured.  The other is designed for children and has the lambs.  I was sold it by mistake and passed it on to a friend with children, who is likely to make good use of it.

Here are some of the photos I took.  (Mouse hovering brings up the captions.)
