I made my way over the Honister pass to Buttermere – the lake Buttermere and the village Buttermere. My first sight was the village church of St. John´s, known for its memorial for the famous walker and guidebook author Alfred Wainwright. You can see his favourite mountain Haystacks from the church window.

Buttermere is a small hamlet between Buttermere (lake) and Crummock Water, which were one post-glacial lake until the land was created by the debris washed down from the surrounding hills. It´s just a short walk to the lake.

At Buttermere I met Gwyneth who became my first in the “Queens of the Lakes” series – the scenery is just so perfect and stunning, one has to use it!

There is a walk around the lake, about 5 miles, which I´ll definitely gonna do next time – I just have to come back!

It was time to say goodbye to the beautiful Buttermere and make my way back to Little Langdale – but as my host Tony had recommended I took a scenic detour along Crummock Water.

And then via Wrynoss Pass and Hardknott Pass – and suddenly there was the sea in the distance!
