King of the Benches

Andrew Locking

Hows this for a Bench View?

This is another stunning photograph by #BenchFan Andrew Locking. Andrew is a regular contributor to My Favourite Bench and his standard of photography is breathtaking. Thank you Andrew.

This King of Benches is at Latrigg near Keswick in the Lake District and must be on your list to do if your visiting the area even if its just to sit down with a flask of coffee and soak up one of the best views in the country.

If you can’t make it all the way up from keswick there is a small car park at Gale Road above Applethwaite with a Limited Mobility path to the view point.

Andrew has an excellent website for walkers at and his site is full of great walks around the Lake District and more.
