Castlehead and Cockshot Wood
A small crag with lovely views. The woods are particularly lovely in May when the bluebells are out.
Turn right from Hazelmere and head to Keswick’s Market Square, walk to the left of the Moot Hall and go straight up St John’s Street past the Cinema and continue on until you find Springs Road on the right. Walk along Springs Road and take the path on the right in between the fields just 300 yards along and climb up through the woods to the top of Castlehead (162m, 531’) for a lovely view of Derwentwater.
Use the paths on either side of the summit to descend to the Borrowdale road, the road taking the path towards Cockshot Wood which lies behind the Theatre by the Lake. You may either leave Cockshot Wood at the far end and stroll back around to Friar’s Crag via the lakeshore path or go through the wood and back through the park by the Boat Landings.
