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 [...]

6 to go and still counting – Carrock Fell and High Pike – brilliant

A real surprise this walk was, thanks to my walking buddy Paul. An inspired route took us around the northern edge of the Caldbeck Fells before turning into the wind and up Dale Beck to Roughton Gill. From here we turned east gaining height up to Birk Moss, before walking up to High Pike – [...]

Ahhhh back up to the Lakes again

I finally got to do a couple of walks in the Lake District with some old friends. The weather was mixed, but the company was good….as was the beer. I drove up on the Tuesday and we walked up to Blencathra via Sharp Edge in the wet. In good weather it’s ok as long as [...]
