Keskadale in the Lakes

Coming back from a trip over to Cockermouth and I made the suggestion that we made a diversion and go via Buttermere. We followed the winding narrow road up through Keskadale,with stunning mountain scenery on either side and when we came to the little hamlet of Buttermere we parked up and went into the little hamlet of just a couple of Inns and a tiny church. There is a walk from here down to the mere which we did not do as the afternoon was too far gone.... saved for another time. It is of course the village made famous for 'The
Maid of Buttermere! Then back through the Honister Pass ,past the Slate mine and back to Keswick.
The photos show views of our trip and some lovely 'Christmas roses' I spotted outside a quaint florist shop on Cockermouth high street.
