Smile WRYNOSE & hardknot pass.

Think your a good rider try a day out in the lakes, do these passes, if youre faint hearted dont bother.
Single track road, opposite camber, seems nearly vertical at times, breathtaking scenery. google it see what i mean.
Ideal for the Southern softees.

Wotcha.

As they say
" Been there, done that"
On all manner of bikes from a Bantam to a Gold Wing.

<< puts on rose tinted goggles >>
Even used the trike and trailer - the thing snapped its throttle cable right on the steep bit. Good job Mr. Twentyman had a tandem brake cable in his little shop at Sea Scale.

Nice bit of twisty road afterwards as well.

Always fun to say I've ridden my bike through Wrynose Bottom

Cheers,

Well that brings back a strange old memory.
Me first big massive trip abroad (well it felt like it, with the planning and excitement of it all), at 17yrs old, was up there, on a Z250A Scorpion, with a mate on a Z250C single, up the passes, round the lakes, including a coupleof nights at Wastwater, end of one of them passes.
Place was dead, brilliant lake, deepest in the country, so we had a swim.
Me mate started chatting to a geezer walking his dog, old yokel with a weathered face, and asked him how come all the lakes are rammed wi folk and set up for tourists, and this one aint.
Telled him its a baaaad place, baaard feeling bout this one, saarmink naaart right...
Yeah righto, spooked us a bit but carried on with our japery, thinking that was his plan all along.
Two years later, this popped into the news......

Wastwater /Wasdale is still a very quiet area in the lakes (apart from the occaisional cragrat) in fact most of the western lake district is relativly undiscovered. Hardnott and Wrynose are definatly worth a visit or two for the views although once the tourists start arriving it can get a bit dangerous as their standard of driving seems to plummet once up here (oh and watch out for the sheep). The Old Dungeon Gyhll pub is a good place to stop for refreshment.
Twentymans plumbing/hardware shop is long gone and is now a spa for beutifying yourself but apart from that seascale is much the same.

Wotcha.

I've had many a pint of "Old Peculiar" in the Old Dungeon. Pity about Twentymans - it was the kind of shop that sold 'everything'.
From gas mantles to piano wire - mouse traps to door mats.

Ah well - it's a good job I keep these rose tinted goggles for special occasions only

The lakes are handy places to dump bodies it seems. A few years back i was doing a scuba course in Lake Coniston. A few hours after we had left another scuba school found a body that had been there for about 20 years, it was stuffed in a canvass rucksack all trussed up with some rope. The victims husband was arrested a few days later on the evidence of a length of the rope he still had in his garage (the ends of the rope apparently matched up).
oh and a couple of years later they found Bluebird and Donald Cambells remains in the same lake.
Wastwater has a series of rock shelves and on one there is a lot of plaques dedicated to the divers who have lost their lifes while diving there, another has a huge collection of garden gnomes.It is a strange and lonely kind of place at times but spectacular in the winter due to its bleakness, oh and there is a good pub with a micro brewery at the top end of the lake in the Wasdale Head Inn.

would have been major planning

As an added bonus right at the end of the run through the valley theres a t junction and right opposite used to be a public w/c. They won the award for best kept w?c in UK. Apparently. lol.
The passes are also the highest in the UK.
Must google that one eh.

makes me laugh(picture will probably have to wait for mod approval-says "100's of warm beds waiting for you in the Lakes" )


The other Lady in the Lake Tragedies

*In 1998 Mrs Carol Park's body was found at the bottom of Coniston Water after she too had been killed in a savage attack in 1976 and then disposed of. The mother-of-three's husband Gordon Park, 54, was later charged with murder but then freed as police dropped the case against him. How Mrs Park met her death still remains a mystery.

*Sheena Owlitt's body was found in Crummock Water in 1988. It was weighted down with an engine block and had only been in the lake for three weeks when discovered by amateur divers. Sheena's fingerprints helped in tracing her identity. When police interviewed her husband Kevin they found blood stains in an upstairs room and their home in Leeds and it was not long before Owlitt confessed and was jailed for life.
