Coach Trip to Keswick 

After a rendezvous at Tebay Services on the M6 we will continue on towards Keswick. It is important for safety reasons that  independent walkers leave details of your names and routes, and a mobile telephone number if possible,  with the courier on your coach.  

A Walk            

B Walk         Leader    Tony Culverhouse                       

C Walk         Leader    Barbara Sharples

D Walk         Leader    Michael Bates​7 miles​Easy

This is a superb walk through part of the delightful Newlands Valley, surrounded by magnificent mountain scenery.

We leave Keswick making our way to the village of Portinscale, then through pleasant pastures before eventually arriving at Newlands Beck.  We then follow the beck for over a mile prior to walking towards the foot of Cat Bells (but we don’t climb it!).  From here we turn northwards walking through attractive woodland before catching sight of Derwentwater at Nichol End jetty.  We then make the short journey along the road into Portinscale prior to returning to Keswick. The walk is mainly on excellent paths, tracks and roads.  It is virtually on the level, except about half way through the walk there is a slight incline for a way which becomes a bit steeper for the final 100 yards. There are no stiles.



Pick up time for return journey.   Returning Home:  6.00 pm fromthe coach  park in Keswick
