Hallin Fell and the Lakeside Path

Name of walk Hallin Fell and the Lakeside Path
Date of walk 2008-04-14

St. Bernards were not in school today so Tom and I went to Glenridding, on the shores of Ullswater, to take the Steamer to Howtown. We then climbed Hallin Fell (1271ft) and took the lakeside path back to Glenridding, a walk of about 8 miles in all.

We left home at eight and caught the first Steamer at 9.45am. View from the shore at Glenridding.

We sat outside on the bow on the way to Howtown, it was a bit chilly.

We went and explored the church and graveyard of St. Peter`s. It is in the middle of nowhere, maybe she is one of the congregation?

16

We walked back towards Howtown and took the lakeside path. The path was up and down and quite rough all the way. We had lunch at Geordies Crag on a seat looking up Ullswater. The photo below was taken from the seat.

We stopped at Side Farm for a cup of coffee and a well earnt sit down before we headed to Patterdale. St Patrick`s Church, Patterdale.

We walked back to the Steamer car park, after a little look around Glenridding, and then drove to Ambleside to visit Hayes Garden Centre to look for alpines for the front garden. We bought quite a few plants and then headed home. We arrived home at six. We couldn`t be bothered to cook so we went to The Ferry for a meal. Another good day!
