TR Patterdale and Hartsop Sun 12 Feb 18
« on: 22:18:58, 13/02/18 »
Beefy chose the walk again on Sunday but the weather put a spanner in the works and the route was changed after we had our lunch. We had walked into town to take the two bus journey to Patterdale. Once there we walked through Rooking along the lovely path to Hartsop

Place Fell from Patterdale


A rather sad looking robin


The robin sat for ages while we got our photos. It was bitterly cold in the wind and there were flakes of snow now and again as we walked.

Arnison Crag


When we got to Angletarn Beck we had planned to go up the beck to Angle Tarn and onto Brock Crags. We stopped to have our lunch near the beck and it started snowing so we got under the storm shelter. The snow kept stopping and starting and clag had covered the tops so we changed our minds and took the higher of the two paths to Harstop instead. It was blizzard conditions for a while and we were pleased we hadn't gone any higher. We reached Harstop and walked back toward Patterdale on the lower of the paths and reached Angletarn Beck again

Arnison Crag and Birks from Angletarn Beck


The snow had stopped but it was still very cold in the wind

Dubhow Crag


We never mind a there and back walk along here

Gavel Pike and St Sunday Crag


The sun was very welcome when it popped out from behind the cloud

Looking back to Hartsop Dodd


One of the nicest footpaths in the Lake District this, we love it.

Glenridding Dodd and Sheffield Pike


Beefy on the return to Patterdale


From Patterdale we carried on walking to Glenridding. We still had an hour and a half for our bus so we walked up to Gillside Farm campsite and then back to Glenridding. We went into the Helvellyn Country Kitchen café and had a very nice cup of coffee each and some very tasty home made parsnip soup and bread. We'd never been in here before, it was very nice, we will go in again  :)

Our route was Patterdale - Rooking - Angletarn Beck - higher path to Hartsop - lower path to Angletarn Beck - Patterdale - Glenridding - Gillside campsite - Glenridding. 12.1km with 338m ascent according to Viewranger. Not sure if the ascent is right  :-\ You can add another 6.9km for the walk into town in the morning and then half way back in the evening, 19km altogether. A nice day out, despite the blizzard and the freezing temperature.

Great pics- really like the one looking along the path to Hartsop Dodd.

That looks like a very nice walk.... especially when concluded with a bowl of hot parsnip soup :)

Those photos are just beautiful, April - the snowy fells look breathtaking against those skies. I love the huge bank of cloud looming over Gavel Pike, it looks so menacing - it's a great picture!  O0 :)


I'm going to make a note of the route on OS maps for future reference, it looks like a cracking walk.  O0

Looked a lovely walk April and some great pictures, well done  O0  Loved the picture of the robin, a real poser! Tony Buckland our local garden guru reckons they will feed out of his hand and I've had a robin land on the spade when I've been digging the garden. :)


Good to see you getting out and about every week and hope you are feeling fit.
Regards Keith

Thanks Welsh Rambler and sunnydale  :)

I am feeling very fit now, just need to lose a few pounds off my middle  :-[ We are off wild camping tomorrow so that will be a test for me, carrying 8.5kg in my ruckie. We are keeping it down to 5 miles walking to where we camp for the first one. Well we hope its only going to be 5 miles, we might end up having to walk a few more trying to find somewhere dry to pitch  :D
