DAY SIX – SETHERA
BUTTERMERE AND BORROWDALE
Cockermouth – Buttermere – Honister Pass – Seatoller
Rosthwaite – Grange – Ashness Bridge – Keswick
Newlands Pass – Buttermere – Cockermouth
Today was to be a round trip from Cockermouth over two of the biggest passes in the Lake District, taking in Buttermere, Borrowdale and possibly Ashness Bridge and Keswick on the way. All before lunch.
We were meeting Richard’s old school friend Eddie at Buttermere for lunch in the pub on the way back.
That was the plan.
It was starting to feel ambitious.
