Blawith Knott

The weather was quite strange this afternoon, it really warmed up and the sun was shining so I made use of it to have a quick walk up to Blawith Knott. When I arrived it was 19°C and the walk was completed in shirt sleeves – it was a real throw back to summer.

Blawith Knott

It was really quite warm and sunny today, perhaps this is the real start of Spring? Everything seems to be beginning to bud and all the daffodils around are in full flower – anyway, it was good to get some fresh air and not have to bother about keeping dry for a change.

Blawith Knott

The southern Lakes had it good today looking at the weather further north. Furness and the surrounding fells basked in sunshine whilst the higher fells still looked decidedly wintry and we had a pleasant and enjoyable stroll across this largely unknown and often ignored area.

Blawith Knott

The weather was surprisingly good this afternoon – it felt windy at valley level, yet up on the fells not so bad! This is a lovely little walk, another of our favourites and not a soul to be seen around here.

Firstly, a few shots taken of Friday from Castlerigg Stone Circle…

Blawith Knott

I managed another short walk this afternoon – no time for hanging around in that cold wind. It felt very wintery up there today with lots of hailstones. There will be more snow on the high fells this week I predict.

Blawith Knott

The predicted Arctic blast did indeed arrive today and it was numbingly cold in the wind even on the top of lowly Blawith Knott – it only seems like 5 minutes since summer! Today was only a short walk followed by an aimless wander around – quite relaxing and enjoyable it was too.

Blawith Knott

Just time to blow away the cobwebs from the Christmas excess today and kick off 2012 with a short walk up to Blawith Knott. The wind was very strong even at this modest height and had a real icy feel to it – not a time to hang around for sure.

Blawith Knott

Just time for a quick walk up to Blawith Knott this morning, the fells were resplendent in their new winter coats so they were well worth a viewing. I would have preferred to be up there rather than just looking…another day maybe.

Blawith Knott and Burney

Two more short walks this morning to keep away from the crowds and the threatened bad weather. As it turned out, the weather wasn’t too bad with sunny intervals. The walks followed were the Blawith Knott and Burney chapters in Wainwright’s ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’.

Blawith Knott

I know, I know – we have not been getting out much recently, the main reason being I have a new job and that is taking up all my time at the moment; never fear, normal service will be resumed soon enough. Tonight we managed a quick evening walk up to Blawith Knott – it seemed a shame not to use the warm weather and the good news about Casper is that the incurable seemingly is (partly) curable, so he can once again join us at least on the smaller walks for now.

Firstly a holiday snap – we were in Provence in July taking in a bit of the Tour de France. We managed to see the Ventoux stage and this photo was taken two days later at the start in Vasion la Romaine. Nice to get so close to the Sky team…

Blawith Knott

Today’s walk visits the little frequented Woodland Valley which lies between the Duddon Estuary and Coniston. It was grey and overcast with no views to the high fells; at least the temperature is getting warmer – it felt like Spring today.

This walk follows the one described in Wainwright’s Blawith Knott chapter in his book ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’, page 108.

Blawith Knott

Today we had a family outing to the virtually unfrequented Blawith Knott which lies between Broughton-in-Furness and Torver. This is another fell that is small in stature and is easy going, yet offers magnificent views to the Coniston fells.

Blawith Knott

It was lovely and sunny and very spring-like in south Cumbria this afternoon – far too nice to stay in! We had a quick sprint up to Blawith Knott to get some fresh air and capture some of the lovely views from this relatively lowly fell, which lies on the southern edge of the Lake District.

Blawith Knott

It was the first time we have had any sunshine for ages today, but it appeared only on the very edge of the Lake District. Looking further north it still looked a bit grim, so we had a walk to the pleasant outliers of Blawith Knott and Tottlebank Height. The camera maladies of earlier in the week are all sorted out now, so it’s business as usual!

Blawith Knott

It was grey and overcast yet again this afternoon for our short walk over Wainwright Outlying fell Blawith Knott. The heavy clouds threatened rain which thankfully didn’t materialise and we had an enjoyable walk with David and Daniel, who are holidaying in the area this week.

Blawith Knott

Just a short walk up to Blawith Knott today with the sunshine chasing us from the south. It was still warm despite being overcast and this is always a pleasant area to walk in.

Blawith Knott

It has been bucketing down with rain for the last 24 hours in the South Lakes, but we managed to find a clear hour for a short walk up to Blawith Knott. The autumn brown bracken and coppery colours are obvious now and make a change from the uniform green of summer. Anyone up on the Coniston fells today would have had a mixed day of weather as I could see the clouds constantly lift and then close in on them from this great viewpoint.

Blawith Knott

I just managed a quick walk up to Blawith Knott today, one of my favourite lesser heights. It was lovely up there with a warm, summery breeze and the birdsong of Meadow Pipits for company. I love it up there.

Blawith Knott

After a busy week or two, I finally made it back onto the fells to try and catch some of the good weather. It was actually a bit colder than I expected today with the breeze but I still managed the walk in t-shirt and shorts and you can’t beat that for a feeling of freedom.

Blawith Knott

It was a lovely afternoon for a short walk to the ever delightful Blawith Knott and Tottlebank Height. It felt like summer was here once more and it was a joy to walk over this way today. Of course we took in the previously self-named Angus Tarn where Casper naturally stopped for a cooling dip, although it is rapidly disappearing to take on its dried up summer status (see the route map as it has been officially named by the StridingEdge mapping service!).
