Walk 8 Blea Tarn to Pike O’Blisco

This walk has a climb about 500m starting and finishing at Blea Tarn.  We find this very quiet spot just between the Great Langdale valley and the Little Langdale valley. On the descent we get to the three shires stone where the historic boundary of Westmorland, Cumberland and Lancashire met. More importantly the local pub in little Langdale ( the Three shires) is definitely a Dexter favourite.

There are two similar photos at the end, and you’ll agree that’s because its’ a view to just absorb. Had it not been such a cold autumnal day we might have swum.

Walk 3 Ullswater to Place Fell

Shame I said just 10 photos but there we are.

This walk needs the steamer from Glenridding down to Howtown. There is a decent amble back along the lakeside but still has its ups and downs. This autumnal day Mrs D took me up and over the top to Place Fell. But it was a bit late on the top for any decent photos.

Prepare a decent lunch and a couple of flasks for todays walk.
