Skelwith & Owlets Nest

Lingmoor Fell and the Langdale Pikes from Elterwater
A gentle ramble from Skelwith Bridge, past Skelwith Force and turned south along the Cumbria Way. After visiting Colwith Force, the next point on the walk was the renewed bridge adjacent to the ford in Little Langdale. Following the metalled lane to the B road which leads eventually to Wrynose. Our route turned right to cross into Great Langdale via Owlets Nest ( a wonderful name), descending to Elterwater in the afternoon sunshine, the trees a marvellous range of colours. The way back to the car was the path beside Elterwater and the Brathey river.
