Scroll down to see photos of the walk
Arriving on the summit of Cat Bells . . .
just ahead of a group of boys from a south east London school
Derwent Water and Keswick from the summit
Looking back to Cat Bells as we start the climb to . . .
Taking the less used path from Maiden Moor we have views across Scope End and High Snab Bank to Whiteless Pike
High Spy . . .
our third Wainwright of the day
Descending through Rigghead Quarries . . .
where Robb and John take time out . . .
to explore the tunnels . . .
and an alternative view!
The old pulley system . . .
with views to Borrowdale
Jenny inspects the climbing hut . . .
which is all locked up . . .
but benefits from great views
Another tunnel to explore . . .
with evidence of rail lines
Our lunch spot has panoramic views across Borrowdale to the Stonethwaite Valley
Castle Crag on the right with Derwent Water in the distance
Derwent Water from Castle Crag . . .
where some young boys have fun on the rocks
Heading back down the spoil heap . . .
and a slight detour to check out the memorial
This horse attracts attention . . .
as it bucks . . .
and paws the ground . . .
before posing for the camera . . .
