Walk: Boredale Hause, Beda Fell Knott, Beda Fell returning by the same route
Start Point: Hartsop Grid Reference: NY 410 130
Distance: 8 miles Ascent: 2,000 feet
Time: 3.75 hours
Weather: Heavy rain, low cloud and strong wind - competely different to the forecast
Comments: This walk was to check out a couple of sections on a walk I will lead in a couple of weeks. However, with miserable weather we decided to return along our outgoing route. Fortunately the walk did enable us to identify the path from Boredale Hauseto Beda Fell - starts through a boggy section and is difficult to locate.

A hazy Ullswater as we hope the rain and low cloud will clear

Just over two hours later we return by the same route with low cloud still covering the higher fells, though the rain has stopped at the lower levels . . .

giving us the opportunity . . .

to take a couple of photos
