Little Langdale

some delightful lower level walking - maybe especially when the cloud is low and its not worth going higher - half the shots taken in the rain, which is not unknown in these parts

Full recommended walk starting at Chapel Stile, get to Cumbria way & proceed up Great Langdale; instead of descending to Stile Farm, go diagonally up to between Lingmoor Fell and Side Pike (carefully) then path just outside NT boundary to end of NT land then descend to Blea tarn car park, then over 'moss' to Castle How. Cross both brooks at Fell Foot bridge & to High Halgarth. Cross Slater Bridge, up to and past Dale End then branch left off unmade track to return. Optional extra circuit to Colwith & Skelwith and return via Elterwater.

The Bield - like the defiance of the steep and barren fellside close behind

Bridge end - a lovely longhouse style farmstead on the bridleway on south side of the valley (sorry it's now raining)
