Starting the walk from Grasmere village, its a lovely short walk up to Easedale Tarn


Grasmere is full of cafe's and there is good cheap car-park at the primary school during holidays.

The hills northeast of Easedale Tarn

Wonderful natural 'watercolour paintings'!

Time for lunch all round after walking since breakfast. Chris, Molly and Phil II !

A grand spot for a picnic - and it didn't rain all day in this part of the Lake district!


Grasmere Common beyond Easedale Tarn.


Phil II, Molly, Chris and Phil I (I'm at last in a photo by using the timer!)


Better picnic weather at Easedale Tarn, warm, even on this late March day in 2017, looking across to the hills of Grasmere Common


The beautiful scenery around Easedale Tarn.

Walking below the hills around Easedale Tarn.


Beauty personified, even on a 'mixed weather' day!


Lots of golden coloured bracken - looks great now in winter, but awful in the summer.



The pictures of the Easedale Tarn landscape can speak for themselves!



 Looking across Easedale Tarn.




Looking down to Grasmere before returning to the village.


Excellent walking country!


Returning by Sour Milk Gill.



Herdwick ? sheep.




Easedale Beck approaching Grasmere.



Back to New Bridge again.


Easedale Beck with Sour Milk Gill in the left far distance.


Walking in the late afternoon is atmospheric as any time in the day as we walk back into Grasmere.


In March 2017 and February 2018 we returned from Easedale Tarn by crossing Easedale Beck eastwards and headed down into Far Easedale.


Crossing over the stream running out of Easedale Tarn.


Lovely lichen on the rocks below Easedale Tarn.



Looking down from Easedale Tarn to Grasmere.


I like the way the rocks stand out in the winter sunshine.



Looking northwest up Far Easedale and the bridge over Far Easedale Beck.


Chris, Phil II and Molly on the footbridge over Far Easedale Beck


Heading into Grasmere on the descent from Easedale Tarn.


Catching the sunlight reflected off the sheep's woolly coats!


Nearly back in Grasmere now, it makes a much more satisfying circular walk to Easedale Tarn incorporating a different return path.
