Great Pub Walks – Hawkshead

Latterbarrow and the Queen’s Head, Hawkshead

Little Latterbarrow, at just 800ft above sea level, may be a mere pimple on the Lake District landscape, but it can hold its own among the towering fells when it comes to views. Stand on its grassy summit and, whichever direction you look in, there’s tremendous scenery all around. From Hawkshead, it’s an easy stroll across fields and along lanes to reach its base.After a short, moderate climb, forest paths and tracks complete the 4¼-mile circuit, leading back to the village where the cosy Queen’s Head awaits. This friendly hostelry has been welcoming weary travellers since the early 17th century.
