If you are in Worcester and you have some time to kill, this short, simple but refreshing walk is a fantastic way to do this. Though it is a lovely route to stroll along, I’m sure it is just as lovely to jog it or even cycle it. As it is short and relatively easy, it is also a good walk to do with children.

The YHA is a great institution and I guess most fell walkers have stayed at a hostel at some time in their lives. Funny how they were created "to help all, especially young people of limited means, to greater knowledge, love and care of the countryside, particularly by providing hostels or other simple accommodation for them on their travels". Here's a collection of routes starting or finishing at a YHA in The Lakes. Along the way, there are 7 Wainwrights,1 tarn and 1 pub.
