Island of Bones by Imogen Robertson

This walk starts and ends at Keswick so what better book to read here than the historical mystery tale of Island of Bones, set in and around the village and in particular on St Herberts’ Island in the middle of Derwentwater.

“On the Island of Bones lies the tomb of the first Earl of Greta. When the tomb is opened there is one body too many….and so the mystery begins…”


Beautiful scenery over Keswick and Derwent Water up a climb to 368m high. This route takes you alongside some of the old railway lines that connected Cockermouth, Keswick and Penrith together. Thus creating Keswick as a grand 1970’s Victorian tourist resort …
