Ling Fell

Start point: Brumston Bridge (NY 185 293)

Brumston Bridge – Ling Fell – Old Scales – Kelswick – Sale Fell – Brumston Bridge

Distance: 3.5 miles     Total Ascent: 420 metres    Time Taken: 1 hour 15 minutes

Weather: Frequent heavy showers and a strong wind. 7oC.

Perhaps I spoke too soon about sun cream and shorts as it was back to winter conditions today with a howling wind and lots of heavy rain showers. This is one of those areas that I don’t manage to frequent too often, probably due to the travelling distance involved from the South Lakes. I remember quite vividly walking this route with James a while back as we saw a newborn lamb and various other things that made it stand out in my memory – when I looked later that was 5 years ago to the day…and now that suddenly makes me feel very old, he was 13 then. Gulp.
