  Latest Keswick Review

  I am a keen rambler and despite living in Kent my annual vacation takes me to Cumbria and to the town of Keswick. This town is a Mecca for any walker as it's surrounded by some of the most atmospheric and scenic fells anywhere in the country. Every year I try to walk Mighty Skiddaw, Borrowdale and the Newlands Valley.   - Poppy
