Skelwith Bridge to Elterwater and Back

Out with Bill today the first time for ages. With the cloudbase sat around 1000' we parked at Skelwith Bridge and set off for an easy day, plenty of time to catch up and have a good chat.
Only 50m or so away from the car is this grand old gatestoop...they don't make them like this anymore.

We walked up through Neaum Crag lodges, and dropped down to Loughrigg Tarn. It threw a light shower, as we used little used woodland paths to descend to Elterwater.
The Honeysuckle is outside the soon to be closed YHA in Elterwater

The cloudbase wasn't altering as you can see...although every now and then the sun managed to break through.
The head of Little Langdale, we're starting to loose a bit of the green!

Slaters Bridge, I wonder how many calenders it's featured on?

Just below Slaters Bridge these lilypads have been here as long as I can remember

Heading back via Stang End and The Cumbria Way through the woods. Folk have got to much brass by the look of this old fallen bough!

Looks like its going to be a good year for Nuts!

Skelwith Force, usually its thronged with people, but today there wasn't anyone. Only a few steps from here back to the car. It had been good to catch up with Bill, and hear what he's been up to over the last couple of months.
