Scafell Pike - the highest point in England
Wasdale, Cumbria, United Kingdom
Our one day delay in order to get better weather is not looking sufficient for our walk up Scafell Pike. As the weather was hardly better than yesterday, we chose a direct approach for a quick ascent and cross our fingers for a break in the clouds so that the boys can reach the top.

Patterdale to Pooley Bridge
Watermillock, Cumbria, United Kingdom
Good day walk if you want to be on a high ridge for several hours. With this being a linear walk you either need 2 cars or use the bus service. The bus from Pooley Bridge down to Patterdale is the 108 which runs every 2 hours. The ridge is a wide grassy ridge that follows the line of the old Roman road called High Street which ran between Ambleside and Penrith...

Hen Comb's Little Dodd in Cumbria
Loweswater, Cumbria, United Kingdom
Classic winter sunshine and snow give an alpine quality to this walk.The soft, fresh and occasionally deep snow slowed the pace which meant we didn't travel as fast ... but there's no rush to go anywhere fast with views like this.Full pictures and report @ http://www.loweswatercam.co.uk/091224_Christmas_Eve_on_Hen_Comb.htm

Lake District: Skiddaw
Keswick, Cumbria, United Kingdom
Wednesday 8th September 14.3km We were planning to do Helvellyn today, but Mark was not feeling so good,. He was feeling demoralised following the walk yesterday up Cat Bells when he had overdosed on insulin and he had run out of energy. Today we wanted something easier. As we left the Heights Hotel in Castlerigg we decided that we would do Skiddaw today as this should be easy. We parked down in Keswick (at 11:30) in the estate...

Following on from Calf Crag is an undulating roller coaster ride over Gibson Knott finishing with distinction at Helm Crag overlooking Grasmere. A swift descent is then made from Bracken Hause back to Greenburn.From the...
Buttermere, Cumbria, United Kingdom
Despite the recent good spell of weather it was rather windy today, so opted for the much favoured 'Round Buttermere' walk. Paths on this much used circuit have been improved over the years, so much so that some resemble highways!!There is a short road section after Gatesgarth Farm and a short tunnel constructed by local slate miners to enable the owner of Hassness to walk around the lake. Hassness is now part...
High Street and Mardale Ill Bell
Mardale, Lake District, United Kingdom
Had planned to do Kentmere round but weather was horrid so we decided to shorten our walk and lower our horizons.By the time we got back we were soaked but skies were starting to clear. By the time we reached the pub ther was hardly a cloud in sight!
