An extension to a simple summit, Binsey remains at its heart , on a clear day offering spectacular views of Skiddaw, the walk encompasses varied footpaths and some limited road walking but all relatively unfrequented .
Start NY202365 Lay-by on minor road off A591

I prefer to do this walk anticlockwise as it then affords good views from the get go, gradually improving.
The start is off the A591 and is signposted with a finger post down a farm track, this leads through a small sheep enclosure (gated) then to the right of the recently renovated Keswick Reach Lodge Retreat. This part of the walk is probably the most difficult to navigate as it appears to go through a “staff only” area and the courtyard of a farm house. (follow my GPS).

Warning Please note that hillwalking when there is snow lying requires an ice-axe, crampons and the knowledge, experience and skill to use them correctly. Summer routes may not be viable or appropriate in winter. See winter information on our skills and safety pages for more information.
