A short, wet, lethargic day. Mist clings to the hills.
Through Ambledside onto the main road.
Along Rydal Water.
Cutting up into the woods I join the corpse road connecting Ambleside and St Oswold's church in Grasmere. These tracks for carrying coffins have thrown up many superstitions and legend - in folklore they become spiritual paths as much as material. I pass a coffin stone on the path - this stone was used to rest the coffin on so that it doesn't touch the ground and pollute the ground.
Through Grasmere to complete the days walk.
