Help with low level walks please?
« on: 20:20:16, 15/12/16 »
Hi,
We are off to Braithwaite next week for our long anticipated Christmas break, we would normally do the fells but my partner has only just broken his arm very badly and ended up having an op. Consequently we don't want to go high or anywhere uneven as he is a bit lopsided and off balance  :-\  so I was wandering if anyone had any suggestions for relatively low, even walks?
Thank you.

This is only a short walk, but I did it in the summer on crutches  :D

Walking is the world’s oldest exercise and today’s modern medicine.

The Lake District National Park has over 48 routes across the Park which are suitable for people with limited mobility.

They are called 'Miles Without Stiles' routes, because there are no ladder stiles or difficult gates to deal with along the route.

You'll be able to see from the map, on the website, which are the ones closest to Braithwaite.   

Walk No. 37 - Keswick Railway Footpath is only partly open, due to last year's storm damage.

I'll second a circuit of Derwentwater - it's a grand walk

A quick drive over the Newlands Pass will get you to Buttermere for a short, level walk around that as well.
I'm on the internet!

Newlands Valley; Dodd Wood; Latrigg woods; Derwentwater lake side walk; Bass Lake walk; Whinlatter forest park would be the local ones :)

We did this one from Hodge Close taking in Cathedral Cave on the way round. I'm normally one that likes to get up high but thoroughly enjoyed this one.
