Gummer’s How

Start point: Gummer’s How Car Park (SD 390 877)

Gummer’s How Car Park – Gummer’s How (OF) – Gummer’s How Car Park

Weather: Sunny with a cold wind.

Today’s walk is a visit to Gummer’s How which is detailed in Wainwright’s Gummer’s How chapter in his book ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’, page 44. After a very wet morning, surprisingly the sun shone in the afternoon – it was just too god to miss an opportunity for this short walk.

‘Here is a fellwalk in miniature, a little beauty, with heather, a few rocks to scramble on, soft couches for repose, a classic view and a rustic Ordnance column – just like the real thing.’ – AW: ‘The Outlying Fells of Lakeland’
