Semer Water

Monday 7th February 2022

Thwarted by the weather again, I changed my Lakeland plans and visited an area that I didn't think I'd ever been to before. But afterwards, having chatted to my parents it transpires that I did go with them as a child. Memorable for them as they managed to lock the car keys in the boot !

No such drama's for me today, the route was extremely quiet, in fact I saw more birds of prey than I did fellow walkers. Quite a lot of gradual ascent for the first hour, but easier going after that.

I parked in Bainbridge and followed a 2000 year old Roman Road before heading over into Raydale and after visiting Marsett, skirted around the very beautiful and still Semer Water before enjoying a walk by the side of the River Bain back to Bainbridge.
