Walking in Cumbria : Please walk safelyWithout wanting to be a kill-joy, I have to say that the weather in the Lake District can be unpredictable at all times of year. It can also change at an alarming speed. If you intend to go walking you should be well prepared with good boots, weatherproof and appropriate clothing.
In most cases you could simply turn round and go home if the weather turns bad, but youre not providing for this case ..... walking conditions can be rough and slippery with steep drops, youre providing for getting lost, then a fall, a joint sprain or a broken bone in your party, ie incapacitation.
Without the proper gear in these circumstances your very survival could be in doubt! Every year people die in the Lakes in these circumstances, dont let it be you.
As additional precautions, tell someone where youre going, when youll be back and take a cell-phone, the signal is quite good on some mountain-tops.
Walks and directions on this website are intended to assist not be a sole guide.
You should have a good large-scale map with you to verify your route as well as a compass for when visibility is poor. The Ordnance Survey Outdoor Leisure series of The English Lakes are well recommended. There are four maps covering the Lakes. These maps offer good, clear detail and a large-enough scale (2½ inches to the mile) for walking.
