OS Wallpaper: September 2018

Cat Bells by Dorothy Agnew

This photo by Dorothy Agnew shows one of the most classic walking routes in the Lake District National Park, Cat Bells. It's a relatively straightforward route with amazing views over Derwent Water.

Cat Bells is a modest 451m hill just west of Derwent Water, near Keswick. It's a very popular walk as it can done in only a couple of hours and gives great views over the surrounding valleys. Although short, it's a steep path in areas, with an easy scramble near the peak, so completing it does feel like an accomplishment.

This photo was taken by Dorothy Agnew of Southampton in early September 2018. She said "the walking route up Cat Bells is popular and it was a busy day, so I was lucky to catch this isolated walker on the path. Even from this point on Skelgill Bank you get great views over Derwent Water to the east and the Newlands valley to the west."
