Windermere lake is reportedly 9.5 feet higher than normal. I managed to get down to the ferry to see the conditions this afternoon. The images show the unreachable ferry, the public slipway at Ferry Nab and also the route of the Windermere Way between the ferry and Bowness.
We had a little rain in the Lakes yesterday … followed by a little more … followed by, well you get the picture. The Lakes wasn’t exactly cut off but let’s say if you were trying to get around Windermere a boat or a pair of webbed feet would have been a great advantage.
These pictures were taken today at Waterhead and Rothay Bridge.
Whilst this site is primarily to do with the Windermere Way and events surrounding it, you will from time to time find my personal musings added here. After all life would be a little boring if it just went round in circles all the time!
