Walking in The Lake District
Gummer's How 1,053 ft

The Lake District - 'A Walker's Paradise'

It is little wonder that The Lake District is immensely popular with walkers. With literally hundreds of established routes, most notably documented by the late great Alfred Wainwright, there is an ideal walk for the novice to the seasoned professional. Here there is a timeless attraction to one of the most beautiful places on earth. The history & splendor of the lake District is unique and has been an inspiration to millions of people - not least those well publicised writers and artists such as Beatrix Potter, William Wordsworth, Alfred Wainwright, Arthur Ransome, John Ruskin, Samuel Coleridge, Thomas de Quincey, John Cunliffe, Stan Laural and George Romney, who were born, lived or fell in love with the area and felt the need to share their passion with the rest of the world. We picture Gummer's How at the top of the page as Wainwright did not include it in his main walking guides, probably due to its reletavely insignificant height, but later included it in his Outlying Fells collection.
