Re: Sweeping up the Tops Around Broom Fell

Another reminder that a visit to the Lakes is long over due for us, lovely photos of the views from these quieter fells JK We did something similar a few years back, it was in the mist so we were lacking in the view department :roll: looks like we're just gonna' have to go back and put that right :D...

Re: Yet more Howgill wanderings

Nice one both, good pics and route on a really lovely sunny day :clap: and pleased that I was able to offer a bit of prior knowledge to a fellow WH'er. It's a great walk no matter which way round you take 8) Like you I've done most of 'em, just a couple on the south side to pick off from the Fairmi...

Yet more Howgill wanderings

This was our fourth visit to the Howgills in recent months, I suppose you can say we've been taking advantage of a "good thing" and, as far as the weather is concerned, we've been pretty lucky too, today was no exception :D Tops visited on our day out Stwarth Green Bell Stockless Randygill...

Re: A Return to the Lakes

Lovely photos again JK, they show just how green and lush the Lake District is :D
I think we'll have to make a determined effort to get back up there soon now that things are getting better, its nice to see walk reports for the Lakes being posted :D

Cheers

Re: A walk along the Cumbria Way to Great Calva.

Yes, it's nice to find the quieter less trodden parts of the lakes. I could almost feel the atmosphere looking at your photos TM, they remind me that we should visit the Northern Lakes again :D

Cheers.

Re: Another foray into the Howgills

Thank you TM I've just looked at your report, very informative, thanks, (a tad cold though :lol:) We're going to have a go at something similar, probably in reverse to what you did (starting off going up Pinksey, great name for a hill :lol: ). Looking at Sunday, weather forecast is reasonable :D Man...

Re: Another foray into the Howgills

Never walked the full distance of Bowderdale as I chose to torture my knees on the plunge down from Randygill Top when I climbed The Calf from the north. Not sure that would have been good for a dodgy knee. If my memory serves me well Green Bell is a fine view point and we'll worth a visit. For ano...

Re: Another foray into the Howgills

A fine route on some very fine hills martinh and although it's a long walk along the valley the time soon goes whilst seeking out the views and grazing fell ponies. Well done on a fine walk :clap: Thank you TM, These are nice hills, it's a shame we hadn't explored them sooner, I wonder how many tim...

Another foray into the Howgills

This year seems to be flying by :shock: :lol: it's been a strange year up to now, we're all living with Covid-19 and the restrictions we have to adhere to, things are getting better but it still feels like life is in limbo and there's still that feeling of doubt when we do venture out away from our ...

Re: Scafell from Mickledore

I've done all three routes over the years, Broad Stand is a no no, quite tricky with not much chance of escape once committed especially if the nerves kick in :shock: . West wall traverse is an interesting and entertaining way to gain the summit of Scafell, take it nice and steady and your partner s...

Re: Pen-y-ghent and (mainly) friends

Another good day out in the Dales AK, considering these are my "local" fells I never think of putting together a route like this one :roll: If you ever want to repeat this route once the virus thingy allows us to get back to "life as we knew it" :lol: set off from Helwith Bridge,...

Re: More time in the Socially Distancing Howgills

Me and Hughie were on those Eastern Howgills on this very same day and I can confirm following many wanders they are well worth a look. :D This was the busiest I've seen the Howgills so I think people are coming here rather than the Lakes/Three Peaks country hoping it will be more quiet, not that s...

Re: Release from lockdown - Gragareth 3

Great report, it's nice to see one about the Dales especially as they're only an hour or so up the road from us :D That looks an interesting route, one that gets you out and away from the usual well trodden parts of the Dales. I keep threatening to have a trip up Calf Top as it's one we've not visit...

Re: Green Velvety Magnificence

Enjoyed that JK, lovely photo's as usual :D
We're just beginning to appreciate how nice the Howgills are to explore, lets hope the kind of large groups you encountered don't spoil it for the rest of us, like you, the call of the hills is becoming louder and difficult to resist :D :lol:

More time in the Socially Distancing Howgills

We've been looking at the Howgills as somewhere new to explore for a while now, they are similar to the hills in the Southern Uplands to look at but on a smaller scale, every time we see them from the M6 we keep promising ourselves a day out in them sometime. We had an exploratory foray in them a co...
