Our aim at WalkLakes is to help you make the most of walking in the Lake District. We do that by searching out the best walks we can find from gentle to challenging and also by putting you in touch with other people who have walked in the Lake District via our forum.
If you want you can keep track of your walks using our web site and log how many hills you've climbed and of what type, be they Wainwrights, Birketts, Hewitts, Nuttalls, or Marilyns. You can also explore all the hills in the Lake District using our interactive map or throughout Great Britain using our hill finder.
We hope we can help you get more out of walking in the Lake District but do let us know if there's anything more we could do to help.
Sunny spells and occasionally heavy snow showers. Strong winds bringing temporary blizzards.
Clear or sunny spells and snow showers, the showers occasionally heavy and perhaps thundery. The showers will be most frequent in the west, where they may merge to give a longer spell of snow for a time in the morning, with the best of the sunshine across eastern fells. Showers likely to ease and become fewer and further between for a time around the middle of the day. With strong winds there will be blizzard conditions at times and fresh lying snow will blow and drift. The fresh lying snow will also produce a significant glare in any sunshine.
Visibility: Good or very good at times but falling to around a kilometre in snow showers and blowing and drifting snow, and near zero in temporary blizzards.
Daylight: dawn 06:33, sunrise 07:09, sunset 17:41, dusk 18:17
