Gummer’s How

It was great to see a little glimmer of sunshine today after all the recent damp weather and Connie certainly needed energising ready for Father Christmas to pay a visit in a couple of days time!

Grey Friar via the south-west ridge

There was an arctic blast again today with snow and hail falling on the higher ground and the wind was biting to say the least.

2015 Floods

I hoped I would never have to post photos like these again after the remarkably similar floods in 2009…

Stickle Pike

The weather was really closed in and downright miserable this morning

Orrest Head

Just time for a quick jaunt up to Orrest Head tonight to catch the dying embers of today’s winter sunshine.


There was a bit of a change in the weather today and it was completely different to the wet and windy weather of the last week…

Black Fell

There has been lots of ‘weather’ around all week – rain, wind, hail – you name it. This morning didn’t seem so different when I set off in full waterproofs but I thought it didn’t turn out so bad in the end really…

Lake District autumn tour

This week the Autumn weather has been fantastic so today’s gallery is from a tour around some of the great places in the Lake District, hopefully shown off to best effect by the weather.

Middle Fell

The fabulous weather from this week continued today and it was well worth a visit to Wasdale for a walk up to Middle Fell.

Kelly Hall Tarn sunset

A few photos from a sunset walk around Kelly Hall Tarn on a lovely evening.

Coniston Old Man

What a gorgeous morning, the sun was certainly shining this morning and the fells were glowing with it – time for one of our favourites.

Walla Crag

Today I took the opportunity for a relatively quick walk from Keswick (in between shop stock deliveries!) up to Walla Crag.

Brock Barrow

Time for a late afternoon walk up to Brock Barrow after a fabulous day of sunny weather – there are great views from up there on a day such as this.

Beacon Fell

I went with Connie and the dogs to check out our old favourite Beacon Fell…

Loweswater Fells

What a fantastic summer’s day for a walk over the Loweswater fells – the sun was shining, the birds were singing (the dogs were barking!) – I really enjoyed this one.

The Dodds

It’s not so long ago that I did this walk (back in January) but I wanted to have another walk around to check notes as this will be a featured walk soon in Trail magazine.


The weather turned out to be one of the poorer days in the middle of a stunning week this week…but you have to take your opportunities when you can so that’s what we did when we had a short walk up to two of the smaller fells at the head of Ullswater.

Red Screes

Time for a quick walk this morning but the weather was not too kind…or too summery at all this morning!

Orrest Head

Time for a quick jaunt up to Orrest Head before lunch…

Middle Fell

What a fabulous morning it was with really clear air and that ‘good to be alive’ feeling. We had time for a quick walk up to well trodden (by us) Middle Fell, the views from there of the Scafells and the head of Wasdale are simply fantastic.

Blea Rigg via Whitegill Crag

What a fantastic morning, the sky and light were excellent today and it was a great day to try out a scramble up to Blea Rigg using the Whitegill Crag ravine.


The predicted weather forecast turned out to be correct today – the low lying fog was due to stay put whilst up above there would be sunshine…
