A Bassenthwaite Circuit

30th April 2013

Yesterday Ged and I did a circuit of Bassenthwaite Lake. A distance of about 17 miles. Kas stayed at home as he would have needed to spend too much time on the lead. Another good, easy but long walk for a nice sunny day. It was not particularly warm,…


Beacon Tarn and Fell

17th April 2013

On Monday Ged, Kas and I took another short walk from Blawith Common up to, and around Beacon Tarn, to Beacon Fell and back. The forecast was for gales and low cloud, so there was little point in venturing out too far. Another good walk for a unpredi…


Catbells and around Derwent Water

20th April 2013

This is the walk I was going to do on Monday, but after listening to the 6.30am Fell Forecast of rain and gales, I went back to sleep! Not today though! The weather is even better than forecast so I change my original idea of walking Catbell’s…


Circuit of Haweswater

1st April 2013

On Easter Sunday Brendan and I drove to Burnbanks to walk around Haweswater. A walk of 10.2 miles. It has been on my list of walks to do for a while. The only downside to today’s walk was the clocks going forward. I usually get up at 6.30am on…


Dollywaggon Pike to Raise in Snow on a Beautiful Blue Sky Day!

3rd April 2013

Yesterday Ged, Kas and I decided to walk from Dollywaggon Pike to Raise using two cars. One parked at the start of St. John’s in the Vale and one on Dunmail Raise. We would walk up Raise Beck to Grisedale Tarn, then take the zig zags up Dollywa…


Lowick to North Scale

26th April 2013

This morning I got Brendan to drop me off at The Red Lion Inn at Lowick at 9am. I will be walking back home following the K2B route. The pub is at the 26 mile marker, so 14 miles to the finish plus nearly 4 miles to walk back home. A fun filled 18 mi…


Top o’ Selside via Low Parkamoor

10th April 2013

Yesterday, Ged, Kas and I drove to Dodgson Wood on the east side of Coniston for a short walk up to the Top o’Selside (1099ft), via a stop off at Low Parkamoor. Top o’Selside is the highest fell on Coniston’s east side. Basically it…


Walney Island: South End to North End

23rd April 2013

This morning was sunny but very windy. Gales were forecast for the hills, so I got Brendan to drop me off at the South Walney Nature Reserve from where I would walk back home. A walk of just under 8 miles. Brendan has pulled out of this year’s…
