Place Fell

I continued working my way around the Far Eastern fells by walking Place Fell from Patterdale today. I found this walk relatively easy and for me the manufactured paths spoiled it; they take away the character and soul of the fells I feel – but I guess that is the price to be paid for popularity. There were lots of sunny spells this morning but the wind up there was wild.

Boredale Circuit

It was lovely and sunny this morning when I set off from Sandwick for a circuit of Boredale – so much so that the legs were soon zipped off from my trousers to make the first walk in shorts this year (was it really only a month ago I was on Harter Fell in the snow?). This was Casper’s first ‘big’ walk and he seemed to cope okay, with a few tips thrown in from the master, Angus.

Place Fell

I travelled East again today to complete a circuit of the fells between Ullswater and Boredale, taking in Place Fell as the high point. There are fabulous views of Ullswater from here, made all the better today with the pleasant Autumn conditions.

The rain was very heavy today, with many areas flooded and gale force winds on the tops. Some interesting shots but no good views unfortunately.
