Rydal: Joe Turner and Chrissy Morris (1939-1997)

The walk from White Moss carpark between Grasmere and Rydal is a favourite of ours and on a recent autumn camping trip to Keswick, after a wet days walking on the Saturday, we took the opportunity to stop here on the Sunday and enjoy the sunshine with a walk up the cave above Rydal Water on our way home.

Alongside the path we found this bench with a stunning view, originally dedicated to Joe Turner, Voluntary Warden.  The bench also has a plaque set to one side commemorating Chrissy Morris.  The plaque reads, ‘In loving memory of Chrissy Morris 1939 – 1997, thanking Joe for introducing Chrissy and Gordon to the wonders of the Lakes’.
