  • This church/chapel is just outside Buttermere but worth the short 10-min walk to see. Most interesting is the plaque for Alfred Wainright whose ashes were scattered on the mountain across the lake...

  • Beautiful views and a fantastic location to start a walk.
  • Has a free carpark just above the Chapel which is open 24/7. The carpark is small but extends onto road side parking. It gets filled quick so get there early or in rhe evening.
