|Walk:||Nicky Nook, Grize Dale, Woodacre Pasture, Moor House, Oakenclough, Grizedale Bridge, Fell End, Potter's Hill, Wyresdale Park|
|Start Point:||Wyresdale Park||Grid Reference:||SD 508 490|
|Distance:||8.5 miles||Ascent:||1,450 feet|
|Comments:||The target of this walk was to check out a cottage at Oakenclough - quite a remote position. Much of the walk had been done previously in the opposite direction and a couple of new sections were added. A pleasant walk on a warm day.|
Harrisend Fell and Calder Fell from Nicky Nook
Grizedale Reservoir is well hidden but I managed to find a gap in the bushes
Reception should be good around here!
Grouse everywhere - but I just mangaed to catch one
The target for this walk - the row of cottages in the centre of the photo . . .
and from a closer vantage point . . .
then zooming in - the third window from the right
Access to the front door is through the gardens of the other cottages
The rear gardens are quite long . . .
but very narrow
The view from the rear . . .
and another from the front
I don't think this car has moved for quite a long time!
