Scroll down to see photos of the walk

Milburn is a very picturesque place to start the walk


Heading up Great Dun Fell the radar station comes into view . . .


or is that a sailing ship I can see?


All becomes clear as we get closer


and closer


Descending by the gully known as Black Doors


The Lake District Fells are just visible in the distance


Looking back to Black Doors - it's like a miniature High Cup Nick


A little splash of colour on the way back - a clump of marsh marigolds
