United Kingdom

A day's meet up in the Lake District...

Suggestion so far is to meet in Keswick, IN THE CAR PARK NEXT TO THE THEATRE BY THE LAKESIDE, AT 0730.

(The theatre's postcode is CA12 5DJ)


.. then we have Derwentwater, Castlerigg Stone Circle, Buttermere, Crummock Water, Bassenthwaite, Ashness Bridge, Watendlath all within reach.
Also - Lodore waterfalls.

Just a suggestion - may it be a more effective use of the day to move the location a few miles up the road to Keswick? That way we will have the opportunity to do some of the "Classic" Derwentwater shots, and the "Jaws of Borrowdale" will be just down the road, as will the famous Ashness Bridge.

Just a thought!! Smile

Could someone please advise a place to stay as I may come up from London to the meet but would probably come up on the Friday and leave on the Monday am.
I see Petra16 has mentioned a youth hostel, am past the "youth" element, lol, but is it close to meet and can you stay a few nights? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks and hoping, Steve

Hi Steve, you may be better asking on the thread - more likely to get a response. I am afraid I dont live up there and cannot advise you as to where to stay.. maybe PM Teresa our hostess for this trip as she lives just outside Kendal.

Any chance of being a little more specific than 'Keswick' for the meeting place? Smile

A long drive from London but I love it up there & have not been for a good few years, so I am taking the plunge and adding myself to the meet.
Please be gentle with the townie lad.

Hi Steve

Can I suggest the Ravensworth Hotel in Keswick its run by a mate of mine and you will be treated like one of the family. You can find the link to the hotel via my website or send me a private message.

Kind regards

Chris C

PS Count me in for the meet, Garaham do you fancy sharing transport, that applies to anybody else who'd like to go up from the Sheffield area.

At the risk of being seen as a spoilsport or even a MeanGreeny I thought I'd raise the ugly subject of how to really annoy your fellow ePz'ers on a meet.

It's quite easy - all you have to do is fit your wide angle lens, run forward to your viewpoint of choice, plonk the tripod down and not look behind you.

If you did look behind you might find yourself gazing down the barrels of medium telephotos all pointed in your direction with frowns of annnoyance behind them.

With 40+ keen 'togs all jostling for that special shot, please be thoughtful of where you stand and, as a general rule, work your way in towards your subject being respectful of people who may be behind you.

A little tolerance, consideration and co-operation goes a long way to having a good day.

Unfortunately I can't make this meeting. My fiancée got very bad flu yesterday and is even worst this morning. It's look like that I will have to take her to hospital so won't be able to coming. I hope you'll get this mesage. I'm really sorry because I was looking forward so much.

We were looking forward to seeing you too, Pavol, but health is much more important. I do hope your fianceé is going to be OK and we'll catch up with yuo another time.
