This is a walk that does not appear in many walking guides. The route follows an old road south of Windermere to Lindeth, which is typical of the small agricultural hamlets that are so common on the eastern side of Windermere.

The name Lindeth is old norse for “Lime Tree Hill”, and indication of the age of this small settlement. Sadly, as with many such hamlets, agricultural activity no longer takes place here and it is now a quite residential area bordered by sheep pasture.

View from Brantfell

The route takes you via the summit of Brantfell, where there is a superb view along the whole length of Windermere.

Victorian Postbox at Lindeth

This Victorian Post Box, still in use over 100 years later despite the best efforts of the surrounding vegetation to encroach, is typical of country areas where the pace of life can best be described as leisurely. It has served the residents of Lindeth since the latter part of the 19th century.
