A short walk that includes a bit of everything. Fishgarths Wood is carpeted with bluebells in mid May, so we couldn’t think of a better time to explore this south-east promontory of Loughrigg Fell. After following the winding path through the wood, a short climb to Todd Crag rewards with a superb view of Windermere and beyond. A visit to Lily Tarn then follows, before descending to Clappersgate and the River Brathay, and then to the Holy Trinity Church.

A small area at the foot of Fishgarths Wood, on the A593 Coniston Road just 1.5 miles from the centre of Ambleside, provides enough parking for 4 or 5 cars.
