This Ullswater shore walk starts with a leisurely lake cruise and continues with a gentle and lazy walk back to the start. Take a picnic and make a day of it.

Leave Glennridding car park, walk down to the pier and take the boat to How Town.

Leave the pier and take the shore path back to Glennridding.

Follow the higher path and turn right the view up the lake towards Pooley Bridge disappears as the path rounds the headland of Hollins Fell.

The lake which turns in a serpentine shape is seven and a half miles long but less than threee quarters of a mile wide and is unique among the lakes, being classed as a public highway.

Further along the path again leaves the shore to cross Howe Grain and Bordale Becks at Sandwick.

Turn left up the road and then right after the cottages to follow the path a little way from the shore onto the slopes of Sleet Fell.

Across the lake is Gowborogh Park whose daffodils were the inspiration for Wordsworths famous poem.

Return to the shore under Long Crag, between here and Silver Point Ullswater reaches its greatest depth 205 feet

The view to Lyulps Tower, rebuilt in 1780 on the site of the 12th century home of Lyulph, the Wolf, who give us the name of Ullswater.

Around Silver Point was also the favourite spot for the eighteenth and nineteenth visitors to ‘try the echoes of Ullswater’ on still evenings canons would be fired and as many as twenty five echoes could be heard rumbling around the lake.

As the path passes near Blaiwick, the abandoned Greenside lead mine above Glennridding can be seen, because of fears of contamination Manchester Corporation opted for Thirlmere to solve it’s water shortage, Ullswater had been their first choice.

Go through the farm yard and cross the Grizedale Bridge over Gold Rill Beck towards Patterdale, known as Patrick dale until the 14th century, legend has it for links to the saint, there is a holy well close by the Elizabethan church yard.

Pass the well and continue along the road back to Glennridding.
