Rosthwaite is 6 miles south of Keswick at the southern end of the Borrowdale Valley on the B5289. The car park is on the right hand side in the village.


Brought to you by the National Trust for Heritage Open Days, join a guided walk with ranger Morwenna who has been surveying these ancient trees.

There are many ancient ash trees in Borrowdale, many of which are pollards. This is a traditional coppicing technique that harvests timber without killing the tree and gives them a very characteristic look. Come and learn more about them while taking in the views at Borrowdale.
