Newlands Pass

The Newlands Pass, also known as Newlands Hause, is a mountain pass in the Lake District, in Cumberland. Through the pass runs an unclassified road linking the Newlands Valley, to the west of Keswick and Derwent Water, with the village of Buttermere.

The highest point on the pass is at an altitude of 1,093 feet.

The Newlands Pass is one of three passes that link the tourist area around Keswick, including Derwent Water and Borrowdale, with the valley of the River Cocker, including such lakes as Buttermere, Crummock Water and Loweswater. From north to south these passes are:

A pretty waterfall, the Moss Force, tumbles down the southern side of Newlands Pass and can easily be reached from the top of the pass.
