Loughrigg Fell Walk

The Walk

22/05/2015

1 Wainwright completed - 51 in total
Loughrigg Fell - 335 metres

Last day in the Lakes on this break and I had to head over to Grasmere on a shopping trip for gingerbread. However my gear was in the boot just in case, and as I walked into the village, Loughrigg Fell caught my attention. So with Sarah Nelson's finest produce stowed in the boot I set off down the A591 towards Rydal Water. Parking just the other side of Pelter Bridge I geared up and set off up the lane towards the lake. Loughrigg Fell certainly made up for it's lack of inches with lot's of interesting features including caves (a former quarry), numerous small tarns and many false summits, thoroughly enjoyable. I was looking forward to a view into  Langdale from the summit when it was eventually reached, however the cloud had dropped significantly and all I had for my efforts would be a photo next to the trig point.
Another Wainwright knocked off the list, only 163 to go !!!

Behind me should have been a beautiful backdrop of the Langdale Pikes.
