A Handful of Langholm 300s

our_route.gpx I recently finished reading Julian Glover's excellent biography of Thomas Telford, the great British engineer, and noticed that Langholm featured heavily. Not only was this little town in the Scottish borders the place where Telford was born and served his apprenticeship, the whole ar...

Seathwaite Fell & Allen Crags

our_route.gpx This was intended to be walk 5.4 in my Nuttall guide, with Glaramara being the main event, but there was a question mark over the whole walk from the moment we left Gateshead on a wet Sunday morning. Forecasts were 'interesting' and we knew the wettest place in England would be, well,...

A Taste of The Far East

our_route.gpx With lockdown restrictions continuing to ease in England, my friend Laura and I decided to go that little bit further afield, that extra half hour, to The Lake District. After a few months away from these hills, I was beyond excited as we chugged our way along the A66, poring over the...

Re: Murton Pike, Murton Fell & High Cup Nick

You should always be thinking about how the area you are walking was formed I think - it adds interest. :) everything in the UK has been disguised by around 10,000 years of "botany". But if you go to the Alps you can see it as it happens fin.jpg same place 17 years apart That's unbelievab...

Lindisfarne - Finishing St Oswald's Way

our_route.gpx St Oswald's Way is one of those long distance walks I've been chipping away at for almost a year. Despite some moments of outstanding beauty, and perhaps because much of it is on territory quite close to home, it isn't a route that I've felt drawn to other than as occasional day walks...

A Windy Wander on Simonside

our_route.gpx This was a good few weeks ago now, so I thought a brief 'photo report' might be the order of the day. This was one of several walks closer to home during lockdown, before we were able to head to the bigger hills. Embarrassed to say this was my first time in the Simonside Hills, but as...

Re: Murton Pike, Murton Fell & High Cup Nick

Fine report of a real jewel in the Pennines. I've done a very similar route myself and can confirm your return to the head of Trundale Gill was the best thing you could have done, the more direct route to High Cup Nick is truly awful, and that was after a dry spell. Thank you :) I'm glad you said t...

Re: Murton Pike, Murton Fell & High Cup Nick

Yes great photos : High Cup Nick is very special. You can see the remains of lateral moraines left as the glacier retreated - They are not obvious everywhere, but you can see them in your 4th pic a bit below the lip. I've started at Harbour Flatts and climbed your descent route a number of times - ...

Thanks so much! It’s just my iPhone, I’m forever telling myself to buy an actual camera yet even waterlogged iPhones never seem to get me around to doing it :shock:

Murton Pike, Murton Fell & High Cup Nick

our_route.gpx High Cup Nick is one of those places I kept on reading about, hearing about, tapping with my finger on the OS map and wondering about. The three red pins marking the fells which sit within the Warcop firing ranges have also been teasing me. They don't look exciting, they seem dangerou...
