THE PATH TO KESWICK ABOVE DERWENTWATER AND THE DISTANT FELLS OF SKIDDAW

THE PATH TO KESWICK ABOVE DERWENTWATER AND THE DISTANT FELLS OF SKIDDAW

Over the bridge the rough road from Watendlath, on the heights between Borrowdale and Thirlmere, crosses a stream which runs down into Derwentwater at Barrow Bay. To the right there is a steep slope up to Brown Knotts, and beyond, in the undulating vale, lies Keswick. The sharp outlines of mountains in the background mark where the fells about Skiddaw (3,053 feet) frown down upon the woodlands of Derwentwater. This is one of the finest views of that Jake. Notice the stonework of the little bridge, built to withstand flood water.
