A Walk to Pooley Bridge

On our last walk before Lockdown, on a beautiful Lakeland morning, we headed from Askham to Pooley Bridge, to see the new bridge which is now open. The previous bridge was destroyed in Storm Desmond, suffering the devastation that so much of Cumbria fell foul to during that disaster. We did much the same walkContinue reading “A Walk to Pooley Bridge”

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. We were planning to walk up from Askham through the Lowther Estate and then up to the ring cairn on Knipe Scar. But in the end we put off the cairn andContinue reading “Walking in the Lowther Valley”

Swallows, Skylarks, Cuckoos and a Stainless Steel Bridge – A Walk to Pooley Bridge

It’s a while since we’ve walked across to Pooley Bridge from Askham, the last time was just before Storm Desmond, where we satContinue reading “Swallows, Skylarks, Cuckoos and a Stainless Steel Bridge – A Walk to Pooley Bridge”

One we do very often is from Askham near Penrith – a circuit of around seven miles across Askham Fell and Moor Divock. We like itContinue reading “Skylarks over Heughscar”

Gowbarrow Circuit – the Ullswater Way

When we last walked the Ullswater Way, we circuited Gowbarrow Fell by way of the Terrace Path on the way to Watermillock. But now having acquired Mark Richards’ excellent guidebook, we became aware that you can go on the other side of Gowbarrow as well – a Panorama Path as well as a Terrace Path.Continue reading “Gowbarrow Circuit – the Ullswater Way”

When out walking a new route, I often think about how, when I have completed the walk, I should look up and find out more information about some of the places I have seen. This does not actually happen as often as it should. Hopefully, this site will go some way to redressing this.
