It’s that time of year when we all like to indulge ourselves a little and spend a bit of well-earned time relaxing in a comfy chair. However, all that lovely Christmas food and drink will only taste even better after a bracing winter walk. This low-level circuit around Great Langdale is never too taxing, but is just long enough to give you an appetite.

It seems like a very long time since last Christmas, when we were working away at the Three Shires Inn, desperately juggling customers, restrictions, shifting Covid tiers and making plans for New Year’s Eve celebrations which were all cancelled at the last minute!

To say that the intervening 12 months have been ‘interesting’ is to put it mildly. From enforced closure at the beginning of the year we jumped back into action in April and were soon going at a hundred miles an hour as the Lake District filled with visitors.

Coniston Water, just three miles or so south of the Three Shires Inn, is one of the most well-known spots in the Lake District.

This route takes you from the Three Shires Inn to Coniston via Tilberthwaite, passing through a number of interesting historical mining sites on the way. The paths and tracks are generally very good, although there is a steep and slippery scree section on the climb out of Coniston and some very wet ground on Coniston Moor.

We all love exploring the fells around Little Langdale and, most of the time, the peak of the excitement during our forays into the mountains will come via the exhilaration of physical exercise or the stunning outlook from a lofty summit. However, accidents can happen to any of us and when they do, the Lake District’s mountain rescue teams are on hand to help.

For obvious reasons this summer is particularly busy in the Lake District and we know that lots of you will be yearning for places to visit and get away from the crowds. Luckily the Lakes is big enough for there to still be a few areas that remain relatively peaceful, even when the hotspots are thronging with people.

Seen from a distance, Pike of Blisco is perhaps the least distinctive of the Langdale Pikes. However, this is only in comparison to the truly magnificent rocky ramparts of the likes of Harrison Stickle, Pike of Stickle and Pavey Ark.
