Return to Murton Pike

Murton Pike is magnificent. No matter how many times I climb this, the highest of the three pikes that seem to guard the Eden valley from the long ridge of the Pennines, I never fail to be impressed.

Corpse Road from Chapel Stile

Walking in the Lowther Valley

We could hardly ever tell people just where we’re going on a walk, as we tend to change our minds as we go.

But in the end we put off the cairn andContinue reading “Walking in the Lowther Valley”
