Sunday Walk 6th May 2012: Ullswater Circular

By Dave Miller

A good sized group of 10, plus Dolly the dog, met as planned beside Martindale Church, all raring to go on what looked to be a promising day for weather.

We followed the route as advertised which rewarded us with scenic walking and a couple of strenuous ascents to test our legs.

From the tops of Sleet and Hallin Fells we had fine views over Ullswater to the north and a wide panorama beyond. In between was easy walking with a pleasant lunch stop on a grassy bank overlooking the lake. The time of year meant that the fields were full of lambs making the scene ever more picturesque.

A perfect walk in a perfect landscape and not a drop of rain.

Thanks to Ian Harford for the usual faultless organisation.
