A red berry day.

Seat Sandal via Little Tongue route.gpx Today was to be a Seat Sandal day, a re-visit day, and it was a day of cloud and sunshine, cloud over us with sunshine beaming down on others more fortunate as we drove along the A591 road to Grasmere where we had intended to park up in the long lay-by near R...

Re: Burnhope Seat, and much more Pennine-bagging

Six down and six to go, not a bad days work there Poppy 8) Re the broken pole on Killhope, when I was there it was just after the big storms and I just presumed that the high winds took it down :? Burnhope Moor - I went to both marked 'tops and saw no value in doing so afterwards as there is only on...

Re: Chapelfell Top

Nice one Poppy and a bit of a different day to when E and I went up there a few years ago when the ditch was sodden and greasy :roll: It was also very windy and we had to miss out Westernhope Moor for a better day. A good walk with some fine photos :clap:

Re: A round of 8 Eastern Fells around Kentmere Pike

Thanks TM. It's surely a great area, with so many options, as you say. As regards a descent via Old Corpse Road, see above - I truly hate walking on tarmac!


Yes I'm a bit like that AK, don't like the black top at all :roll: :?

Re: A round of 8 Eastern Fells around Kentmere Pike

A great walk report and a fine effort across some fantastic fells :clap: It's one of my most favourite part of the LD as there are so many options around there :) I can also only concur with the others when suggesting leaving Selside by the Old Corpse Road but hey, it's your walk AK so you choose th...

Re: Sweeping up the Tops Around Broom Fell

And yet another good report and the usual great standard of photos :clap: These are great fells to walk with not a lot to interrupt momentum apart from stopping for the views. We more or less followed in your footsteps just a week later JK but as it's less than a year since I last did it with Chris ...

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

I agree the fells are getting steeper :lol: there is something to be said about this kind of day in the lakes, the quiet atmosphere can be very nice in a soggy kind of way. They get no better coming down 'em either sometimes JK :roll: :crazy: and yes, I don't mind a nice damp day on the fells with ...

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 Fairmil...

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. Thanks for your comments martin h :D The northern fells have been a little busier these last few ...

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 Ma...

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...

Re: 25th June and a Lake District invasion.

Looks a lovely day with the fells looking superb, as for the actions of the inconsiderate masses it paints a sad picture. At what point do you turn up somewhere and decide I can't get parked and move off. To some it seems never and the car will be dumped anywhere and sod the consequences. Hopefully...

A walk along the Cumbria Way to Great Calva.

Great Calva route.gpx A damp and cloudy day saw us passing through Mungrisedale and driving on to Mosedale – yes another one - where we turned left along the narrow metalled lane that runs below the south side of Carrock Fell passing green pastures aplenty along this attractive dale. Another lovely...

25th June and a Lake District invasion.

Eagle Crag and Sergeant Crag route.gpx Lockdown rules had recently been relaxed so it was inevitable that a mass one day migration to England’s beauty spots would occur, and that the LD would be one of the hardest hit, not as we could see primarily by walkers, but by countless numbers of sun seeker...
