Greenup Round

I wanted to do a decent walk today as it feels like ages since I have been on a long one…

Greenup Round

It started of brightly enough today but the clouds were soon rolling in and the wind was once again mighty cold. There was some fresh snow visible on High Crag showing just how cold it was and the going to Ullscarf from Dock Tarn was made that bit tougher by the boggy going underfoot.

Today was certainly a day of two halves for this walk around Wainwright’s ‘loveliest square mile in Lakeland’ – dull and drizzling when we set off eventually ending up as sunshine and blue skies for a lovely Spring day ending.

Grange Fell

Today’s walk takes place in ‘the loveliest square mile in Lakeland’ according to Wainwright, in Borrowdale up to Grange Fell and across the valley to Castle Crag (incidentally the lowest Wainwright and the only one less than 1000′). It certainly was lovely today as the sun shone and it was very warm with the merest breeze; a real English summer’s day.

Weather: Generally dull with some rain and sunshine.
