Join an insider's hike in the Lake District that will be safely tuned to conditions on the day and the abilities of the group. This trek, in reasonable weather a classic ridge walk, will reward you with a sense of achievement & world-beating views over lakes & mountains: the inspiration for poets like William Wordsworth. It's a special place & the distance between you & heaven here is a lot less! We will go through route planning, map reading, gear & basic mountain safety. You do need to be fit enough to walk in hilly terrain, have a head for heights & curiosity about your natural landscape. This was once a land of ancient volcanoes and deep glaciers and we'll discover how they have left their mark. Today it’s a place of rocky crags, deep lakes & green valleys. I want to give small groups of people the opportunity to see the terrain through the eyes of someone who is a local but also a professional geologist. You’ll acquire basic skills that will help you begin to satisfy your curiosity about landscapes all around us. We will walk and talk with a purpose! Pick ups from Carlisle, Penrith & Keswick possible. Try another northern England classic hike: Explore Hadrian's landscape
I’m a local, raised in Cumbria, did my degree in Newcastle. I’ve been hiking, running & biking across the north of England for more than 50 years. So I know the hills & valleys of the Lakeland fells intimately but I also understand why they are as they are - their geology. I worked for the British Geological Survey for 38 years, including Cumbria; I retired as a director. I was a science consultant to the BBC for 6 landscape documentaries. I'm a National Trust guide & first aid trained. I am a trustee of 3 northern environmental charities & guide hikes in Northumbrerland & the Lake District
Pick up from Carlisle, Penrith or Keswick is possible

This trek is in the Lake District, a National Park & World Heritage Site. Our goal will be a ridge walk linking the high fells in the north & centre of the Park. It's a landscape that attracts people of all backgrounds, whether for physical or spiritual motives. We will explore its geological & historical evolution thru sights which most people fail to appreciate but I suspect the emotion you will retain long after is its power to inspire you
