Comments: Walking from Lamplugh Green this walk was much pleasanter than the route we had taken previously from Crummock Water. Our first target was Owsen Fell, From where it was an easy walk on to Burnbanks, followed by a climb up to Blake Fell. Leaving this summit we had a long walk down before climbing again, this time up to Gavel Fell. Retracing our route for a little while we then made our way over High Pen and Low Pen. The route took us down through the forest to Cogra Moss before making our way through fields to our starting point.
