February's Wednesday afternoon walk began in the village of Elterwater in bright sunshine. The Britannia Inn was doing a roaring trade as all the outside seating was fully occupied, not an option for our members said Kath.
The group walked along the riverside path towards Skelwith Bridge enjoying the great views of the Langdales. John was so taken with the view that he actually allowed a photo of himself on the bench by Elterwater.
Skelwith Force was not as forceful as hoped but was still worth the look. After crossing the river by the fairly new bridge we walked up through the woods and through the fields, passing Park Farm to reach the road at Low Colwith. We walked through the woods to Colwith Force, a new experience for some and had a short drinks break whilst admiring the spectacular view there.
Because of time restrictions we then returned to the road and made our way back to Elterwater.
