Start your day leaving Glenridding, and the shores of Ullswater to head up to the Grisedale Valley and wonderful stride out with St Sunday Crag & Dollywagon Pike towering above you on the south side of the valley. Way above us at the head of this valley marks the spot where William Wordsworth said good bye to his Brother for the last time in 1800 before being killed at sea four years later. Keeping our walk fairly level we returning to Lanty's Tarn along the north side of the valley, Ullswater leaps towards you oas you pass the tarn to give spectacular views from a well acclaimed vantage point and perfect photo spot.
Our picnic spot will be in the Lanty's Tarn region, weather dependent if we sit facing Ullswater or back down into Grisedale, both sides are magical in different ways.
Moving on up to the Greenside Mines following the water leats towards the head of the valley and a good view of the mining levels, we see the scale of the lead mines here. We return on easy terrain down the Greenside Mines bridlepath.
