Thirlmere Green Walk

14th January – Reflecting on a walk I did last week when the snow was lovely on the tops. I walked from Station Coppice request bus stop opposite The Swirls car park. Wandering down the eastern shore of Thirlmere to the dam. Turning right by High bridgend to cross the lovely footbridge over St John’s Beck to Smaithwate and on to Shoulthwaite request bus stop on the 555 bus route along the A591 south of Keswick.
