Dallam Park and the Fairy Steps
We planned this circular after hearing some good reports from people that had done it. I based the route on this web article. Some free roadside parking is available at the start of the walk and a decent sized pay and display is situated a few hundred metres west of the Milnthorpe crossroads.This was a super walk with a varied landscape. I goes via the Fairy Steps which is quite easy to...
Ash Landing & Claife Station
Near Sawrey, England, United Kingdom
This is a lovely walk on the quieter west side of Lake Windermere. The route heads north through Heald wood then south back on the lakeside.The track uploaded was not actually the route planned as we had to turn back at one point due to a footpath being closed due to tree felling. It was still a great walk though.
Kinder and Two Trigs
A walk over Kinder Scout. Starting in Hayfield and walking the the bottom of Kinder Low Edge before following the old pack horse trail round to Edale Cross. Then up to Kinder Low Trig Point. Next stop and lunch was Kinder Downfall. Not a lot of water flowing over it today and no wind to make it the upfall. From here it was a walk along the Pennine Way before crossing to...

Return To Roundloaf Walk - GC3894Y
Roddlesworth, England, United Kingdom
The PlanTo view sun rise on Round Loaf. Note that this is different from previous "Winter Solstice" events. It usually has been the aim to view day break (i.e. Nautical Twilight). This time we are after the actual sun. The reason for this is that for the first time we are attempting to view day break on one hill and sun rise on another. All being well we will catch day break on Great Hill.
A wander around Hartshead Pike
Ashton-under-Lyne, United Kingdom
A lovely long afternoon with Kevin, AKA Scubaclogger, the weather just about held off, although it was very slippy underfoot after all the rain of late. Not too eventful overall, just a nice stroll, with a little puffing and panting now and again. Finished the day off with a pin n pint in Stalybridge.
Place Fell wander
England, United Kingdom
Had a great day out with Stephen, AKA Grufftymilo, we took the lesser used north track up Hare Shaw and The Knight to the summit of Place Fell. Incredable winds, over 60mph, made it tough going, and both of us were blown over more than once. There was a 'masterplan' to continue to Angletarn Pikes, however, common sense prevailed, and our safety came first ... well ... almost .. The thought of...
