Castlerigg Stone Circle, Fleetwith Pike & Hallin Fell

Here is a seleciton of my photo’s taken back in July of last year at 3 different locations found within the Lake District – Castlerigg Stone Circle, Fleetwith Pike & Hallin Fell. All of which were reasonably easily accessible from our base for the week in Keswick, in fact the first location, Castlerigg Stone Circle, was literally just up the road from it.

As you might tell from the pictures the weather on the day wasn’t the best, strong winds with occasional heavy downpours. Our short circular walk started out from the stone circle across to Low Rigg and then back again. We could have adiverted up High Rigg but decided against it due to the weather

The second walk was from Honistor Pass Slate Mine to Fleetwith Pike, taking in views of Buttermere, Hay Stacks, Green Crag and the Warnscale Head Bothy. This was involved a personal achievement of actually making the top of the Fleetwith Pike (with photogaphic proof!), which I failed to achieve last year due to gale force winds and torrential rain.

The last walk was up Hallin Fell to enjoy the views across Ullswater.
