Special Walk – WORDSWORTH’S DAFFODILS, Ullswater
We will be walking part of the iconic Ullswater Way, to Aira Force, with a slight deviation for a view, which may include a little tad of tricky terrain for around 5 mins which is a great intro into our Lake District terrain if you were thinking to join us on higher level walks.
Nic will talk you through the use of poles in the fells and how best to use them on typical paths in the area, before a gentle descent to the shores of Ullswater to view where Dorothy Wordsworth and her brother Wiliam saw the dancing daffodils for the in inspiration’I Wondered Lonely As A Cloud’… They are not the origianl daffodils, but the smaller species which was ones on the shoreline have been replaced and catch the breeze as they did in times gone by. I have picked the week i think best to catch the daffs at their best…
We will catch the Ullswater Steamer to return to Glenridding and see the daffodils from the waterside also – THIS IS INCLUDED IN YOUR WALK COST. Pennies may be useful for the cafe at Aira Force if we have time to wait for a steamer.
