Join Julie for a potter around Glenridding

Wednesday 15 May

With the fatigue of a week’s fells in my legs, I gave myself some time off! I spent a lovely day in Glenridding, home to the Ullswater ‘Steamers’.


Imagine living in one of the cottages to the left – everyone tells me I’d hate it in winter…

A delightfully tranquil way to spend a couple of hours


Glenridding back to its beautiful best after the flood damage of 2015

Poignant reminder of the sacrifice made by the local community. War memorial between Patterdale and Glenridding with a personal cross for each of the fallen. RIP


A quiet spot to drink in the panorama and get on with the latest book review
