I had envisaged going for a longer walk today but the conditions were a bit off putting for walking the high fells to say the least – the wind was howling and the driving rain put paid to thoughts of any longer walks. Instead, I had a shorter walk around Tilberthwaite, heading up to Great Intake which is a relatively small fell yet one which commands fine views.

Today’s walk is a round of the Tilberthwaite Fells. Nestling between Coniston and Langdale and bearing the scars of an industrial past, this route with fells of small stature offers some excellent and surprising views.
