The Lakelanders Instameet October 20th 2018

Thanks for showing an interest in our latest instameet. Here you'll find all the information you need to keep up to date on what is happening and where it's happening 

 Date: October 20th 2018

Meet Location:


The second annual Autumn instameet will, again, this year be a double location, we will start the day with a walk around Buttermere, some of us (everyone welcome) meeting for sunrise around 6:45 and everyone else will be meeting at 9:00 in the Car Park behind the Fish.

For those heading down for sunset the plan would most likely to be to head to the infamous ‘Lone Tree’ there’s plenty of areas around this locale to find a nice composition before the sun comes up, Shortly after sunrise there may be a group who wish to go down to the Sentinels for some shots before the 09:00 meet up time. Once everyone has arrived the plan is to do the 5 mile walk around the lake, this is a gentle walk with no hills and should be comfortable for everyone with a moderate level of fitness.

There will be a break for lunch once the walk is complete, there are a small handful of places by the car park including a pub and a cafe, or you can head into Keswick for a pub lunch.

We will then meet at the Bowder Stone car park at approx 14:00 to decide on where we would like to explore in Borrowdale, there’s no fixed itinerary, last year a couple of groups went in different directions.

There are many stunning places around the Borrowdale area to explore, here’s a couple of examples courtesy of fellow lakelanders Carmen Norman and Stuart McGlennon

For those who are staying in Keswick for the weekend (obviously anyone is welcome though) a few of us will be heading into Keswick for food and a few drinks on the evening once the meet is over, everyone is free to join us to finish of what we hope will be a great day of photography

We have set up a free ticket registration page to register your interest. It isn’t mandatory to have a ticket to come, it’s purely so we can gauge numbers to best organise the day, you can register for a free ticket here:

We hope to see you all on the 20th.

Thanks for your continued support of these events.
