The Inn Way to the English Lake District

The Inn Way to the English Lake District
7 days, 90 miles, 44 pubs
11th - 17th May 2019

I wrote the guidebooks to this walk 20 years ago, and now guide one of the five 'Inn Way' routes each year.

This year I guided 9 people along The Inn Way to the Lake District, and had wonderful hot, sunny weather all week. I camped along the route, which was a joy in such lovely weather.

There were loads of highlights along the way... Greenup Gill, High Spy and Cat Bells, Coledale Cause, Kirkstile Inn, Crummock Water, Black Sail Hut, Wasdale Head, Eskdale and Harter Fell, Broughton-in-Furness (cheapest beer in the Lake District!), Beacon Tarn, Elterwater and Loughrigg Fell.
