Kentmere Valley - Lake District
The narrow valley spans about 3 miles in length and begins with a bowl of hills known as the Kentmere Round; a horseshoe of high fells which surrounds Kentmere Reservoir. The reservoir is now the source of the River Kent which gives Kendal its name. The valley is sandwiched between Troutbeck on the west side and Longsleddale on the east. A walk described by Wainwright in his Far Eastern Fells series as the Kentmere Round involves a 12 miles all-inclusive round trip.
