Ashness Bridge, Surprise View and Walla Crag Photo Walk

This guided Lake District photo walk takes us around some of the most famous views in the northern Lake District – Ashness Bridge, Walla Crag and Surprise View.

Meeting at Great Wood car park just outside Keswick on the road into Borrowdale, we take the path to Calf Close Bay with its fine views across the water to Cat Bells, before beginning the steady climb to famous Ashness Bridge and then up to the sudden vista above a precipitous drop at Surprise View.

It’s then time to double back to climb further to the high point of the walk both in terms of altitude and views – Walla crag. There are excellent fell and lake views throughout.

Although this is not a tough fell walk you will need to be fit and used to walking uphill and over rocky footpaths – the high point of Walla Crag is over 1200 feet high.

Lake District photo walks are ideal for beginners looking to learn more about some of the basics of photography in a relaxed and informal environment, whilst walking amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in the country. They are ideal for those of you who wouldn’t necessarily want to participate in a slightly more intensive photography workshop.

Digital SLRs, compact system cameras, bridge cameras or even smartphones are all welcome, however those with the ability to take some manual control over the camera’s settings are likely to get most out of the day. Also, as this is the Lake District, mobile reception for immediate Instagramming cannot be guaranteed!

The walk will begin at 8.30am, and will take approximately 3 – 4 hours.

The cost is £35 per person, and there are a maximum of six places available on this photo walk.
