Ascent of Loughrigg

Loughrigg is one of the shorter fells, just over 1,000ft high, but its position is superb - it is only linked to higher ground to the west, and even there a deep valley separates it from a ridge that leads up to the Langdale Pikes


The small hamlet of Blawith is located on one of the many Smithy Becks in the Lakes, just to the west of the River Crake, and only a mile to the south of Coniston Water.


The small village of Backbarrow sits in a gorge on the River Leven, downstream from Newby Bridge, and was once an industrial village.

River Esk (North York Moors)

The River Esk is the longest river within the North York Moors, the only one to from from west to east and the only one to flow into the sea (at Whitby)

Church of St. Hilda at Hinderwell

The church of St. Hilda at Hinderwell was built in 1773, replacing a twelfth century church built on the same site.

Church of St. Andrew at Ingleby Greenhow

The Church of St. Andrew at Ingleby Greenhow is a Norman church that was restored in 1741 and again in 1906 but that still contains a great many original features.

Ullswater Steamer and Shore

Ullswater Steamer and Shore: This is a super walk, one of the best in the district, and it combines a trip on the Ullswater steamers with a classic walk along the southern shore of the lake.

Scafell Pike from Wasdale via Sty Head

A more challenging walk, this takes us up Scafell Pike from Wasdale via Sty Head, Sprinkling Tarn and Esk Hause. We also add a picture gallery for the Scafell Range.

Blencathra via Doddick Fell

This is a superbly well balanced ascent of Blencathra, avoiding the nastier ridges, using Doddick Fell to avoid the grassy eastern or western ends of the fell on the way up.

Scafell Pike from Great Langdale

Scafell Pike from Great Langdale: This is a lengthy but deservedly popular walk, taking us from one of Lakeland's best valleys to its highest summit.
