A short walk near Ullswater in teh Lake District to discover a Roman road and an ancient stone circle.
At first glance this featureless fairly level tract of land doesn’t offer up many obvious signs of life. But if we look a little closer there’s evidence that far from being remote and wild this is a much trodden area.
In fact this treeless moor was once strategically important land, used and celebrated by our ancestors from the wild Celts to the enterprising Romans and beyond.
On this trail we’ll stroll along an empty ‘High Street,’ sit in a ‘cockpit’ and enjoy tranquil views of one of the loveliest lakes.
