544 Claife Heights

Not many walks start with a haunted boat trip and surely the Crier of Claife is unique - he's the only ghost marked on an OS map. The Crier terrified a 15th century Windermere ferryman and afterwards few would venture onto the water after dark. So, strolling beside the lake, is it only the wind you can hear in the trees?
