I had the idea for this walk around 20 years ago. Having lived in and around Windermere for most of my life and visited most of the viewpoints around the lake I thought it would be an interesting project to link these together and to walk right around the lake.
The Windermere Way route was first published in 2003. The map was available from local bookshops but promotion and distribution cost more than I was making from selling it so this was abandoned. Publishing the route as a website is a way to bring this lovely walk to a much wider audience. I hope you enjoy it.
