Travel Tips for Keswick

Crosthwaite Church

by steventilly

Crosthwaite is on the edge of Keswick, you'll pass by it if you walk from Keswick to Portinscale.
Canon Rawnsley, the founder of the National Trust and Robert Southey the Poet Laureate are both buried in the churchyard, along with some other prominent people.
The church is quite pretty, in a "solid" sort of way, and is nicely set against the backdrop of hills.

Crow Park

by steventilly

Absolutely one of my favourite places not only in Keswick or The Lakes, but in the whole country.
It's wonderful to sit on this great big, gently sloping grassy bank and just look at the lake and the hills all around it.
It's great in the morning, the midday and the afternoon, but my favourite time of day is the early evening, as the sun is just beginning to set. The light on the hills at this time is lovely and it just seems oh so tranquil here.
The park (which is really just this big grassy hill) is enormous and often has sheep or cattle grazing it (so watch where you sit). In spring there will even be lambs there, which are oh-so-cute! Sabs & us spent ages watching them just jumping around!

Midst the gloom

by iandsmith

Overshadowed (on a clear day) by the nearby Blencathra, a rotund hill whose benign appearance can be deceiving if you're caught in a storm up there, the Castlerigg Stone Circle is one of Great Britain's most famous and, in Cumbria, the most visited. The latter is aided by its proximity to Keswick, from which it is very easily accessible. Castlerigg is one of the first stone circles to have been built in Britain, dating from around 3000 BC. Various theories have been put forward as to the circle's purpose, ranging from a burial site to an astronomical observatory. What is for certain is that, despite its popularity, this is a remarkable place of peace and tranquillity.
It's also an eerie spot when you're there on your own and occasional drizzle is falling through the mist that covers stones. It's on a day such as this that you could get religion here.
I was the only visitor and the ground squelched beneath my feet as the haze drifted across the misshapen rocks, all 38 of them. For sheer drama they don't come close to the likes of Stonehenge and some of those on the outer islands of Scotland, but you are left wondering their meaning.
I have it on good authority that the view from here is quite beautiful on a good day. I have to say it wouldn't be anymore atmospheric than when I saw it.
