The redevelopment of Waterhead, Ambleside is in full swing.

The improvement to Waterhead  promenade will include resurfacing walkways, repairing walls and installing a ‘panorama’ board, to identify key Lakeland landmarks that can be seen from the shore.



Theres also new benches and seating, better landscaping and railings and litter bins all designed to be in keeping with the location and surroundings. The improvements are due to finish April 2016.

Waterhead lies at the northern tip of Windermere lake and is a mile from Ambleside. Its the finish (or start ) for the length of Windermere swim, so all you long distance swimmers will finish up in slightly more salubrious surroundings.
