Big Day Out - Elterwater Round (minibus trip from Millom)

August 11th 2022

This is a trip out from Millom – we’ll be going to Elterwater to wander along the river, round the lake, through meadows and return via woodland – a little bit of everything!


We’ll be meeting at the Tin Chapel in Millom at 10am – and aiming to be back between 3-4pm – we’ll travel to Elterwater in a minibus provided by Wellness Walks – because of this participants must book on to the event as spaces will be limited.

Please note: There is an approximately 50 minute drive each way.

Our  plan will be to walk along the river (keeping an eye out for kingfishers and demoiselles) and then on past the lake, maybe stopping for coffee/snacks. We’ll then pass the first waterfall and wander out into meadow land with spectacular views (hopefully) of the Langdale Pikes. Each year there are more and more wildflowers in these meadows – so we won’t hurry.

We then have an optional 20minute detour to go and look at Colwith Force – before we return along lanes and the forrestry track

The walk should take about 3 hours – but we’ll be taking our time, stopping a lot and generally taking it easy whilst we take in the views – but participants must be confident they can manage the walk. There is a cafe and a pub at the parking spot
