Golden Autumn in the Lakes

The leaves are starting to turn in the Lake District and if the good weather holds, the next couple of weeks could see some dramatic displays as the colours change to red and cold.

There are many parts of the Windermere Way that pass through woodlands that are putting on their best display at this time of the year. Amongst my favourites are Blake Howe Plantation and the area around High Dam, where the variety of woodland species makes a truly magnificent display.

The relative lack of rainfall and wind means that many leaves are still on the trees and if the weather holds it’s going to be quite spectacular.
