A Walk in St John's in The Vale, near Keswick

Rob, Brock and I went on a walk in The Lake District last Thursday. We visited a new-to-us area near Keswick called St John's in the Vale, and used the rough map on this website as a guide. There are quite a lot of areas over the fellsides where dogs must be on a lead, as there are sheep about. The going underfoot is muddy where you pass over small streams, so waterproof footwear is recommended. Well worth enduring the mud for the beautiful views, though.

After that refreshing walk, we went into Keswick for lunch at Abraham's Cafe (now revamped to be larger, but has sadly reverted to being dog free, which means we won't be able to go there during the warmer months). A very pleasant day out!
