Well this wasn't the walk I'd intend to do, but the snow was very bad in the lakes and the only place available to park was the main car park in Ambleside and I needed a push to get in there (thank you if you read this :) )
It turned out to be a great walk in some good deep snow. Here is the route and a few Pictures.

Lovely shots Chris, the snow looked to be a good depth in places too. Lucky to have someone come along and give you a push into the car park :D
