Starting Point Information Centre
Car park, Bowness Knott, Ennerdale Water

Difficult to reach, well perhaps it is a little, but Bowness Knott is in effect the gateway to the wonderfully remote Ennerdale Valley and therefore well worth the effort required to get here. The valley beyond the car park stretches for over six fantastic traffic free miles.

Parking is free and the car park always has plenty of empty spaces available.

A little further up the path. This time with Ennerdale Water, split in two by Bowness Knott.
The headland on the far side of the Lake is Anglers Crag.

Another Break in the cloud this time looking down to Crummock Water and Mellbreak.
It was one of those "quick get the camera before the cloud comes back" sort of days.
