I was hoping to get up ‘High Street’ in the Lake District National Park, and one of the routes starts at Haweswater – a large reservoir. Unfortunately my walking buddy Mark couldn’t make it so I decided to go with another friend of mine who was not as experienced. When I got to his house to pick him up, he had arranged for his son and his son’s girlfriend to accompany us, but to my amazement they were not prepared having only brought a simple pair of trainers each and no outdoor walking gear at all.

I decided that I would not be responsible for their deaths – High Street is a serious walk and it was misty and cold – so we spent an hour or so walking around Haweswater – here are some shots I took of the reservoir.
