Back to walking – Arnside in North Lancashire

I nipped up to the Lake District on the 23rd January to meet up with some friends for a wet walk on the Friday 24th around Little Langdale and Low Tilberthwaite. I had a leisurely drive up from Manchester and decided to visit Arnside before travelling on to the lakes. It was a touch chilly, [...]

Lingmoor Fell – a Lakeland idyll..

one of my favourite spots in the Lake District is the area around the Langdale pikes, and nestled down in between Great Langdale and Little Langdale is Lingmoor Fell. A great little fell with some interesting sites and fabulous views on a clear day over the bigger fells all around – it packs a punch [...]

Great End revisited – great views

Work cancelled  and the forecast of some decent weather saw me tick off another revisit to a Wainwright where I’d had no views previously – my revisit list is now down to 7 walks. I’ll be glad to be done so I’ll have the views recorded for each of the 214 Wainwrights on my site. [...]

High Pike and Carrock Fell revisited

A chance to walk once more, eagerly taken as the weather forecast was good. It was to be another revisit to High Pike and Carrock Fell as my previous visits were marred by low cloud. I walked this way on the Cumbria Way and did the identical walk with my mate Paul (he made up [...]

Another Lakeland revisit – Bowfell via the Great Slab, Crinkle Crags and the Pike of Blisco.

30th April -  around 10 miles and 3900ft of ascent. Not a drop of rain on my head.  One of the most beautiful parts of the Lake District that I have had the pleasure of walking many times. I revisited today as the weather was so fine to capture a murk free Climbers Traverse and [...]

Fleetwith Pike revisited

Continuing in my revisited cloudy summits, this time was a very early turnout for a visit to Fleetwith Pike. I didn’t take my big camera as I’d been up half the nighjt with my grandaughter who was staying over – first time away from home. Needless to say she woke at 1 and 3am, and [...]

Mellbreak revisited

A few weeks ago – last month actually I walked up to Mellbreak and Hen Comb from the Kirkstile Inn. An evening stroll produced fine light over Grasmoor and Whiteside, before a few bottles of Wainwright Ale hit the spot. The morning promised plenty as the sky was blue and it was nice and crisp.

Just lately I’ve had a fair few e-mails about various bits and pieces, which is always nice for me to know that people read this stuff now and again. The NT got in touch as they are running a promotion now about celebrating The Great British Walk this autumn with walking trails, events and even [...]
