Lovely area I don't know well, seems well worth an explore.  Some lovely quiet little corners and as much as the tops can be worthwhile for the views, ambling by streams and over stepping stones has a charm of it's own.  I've been trying to link together a 'Borrowdale traverse' (from E Borrowdale to the more famous centre lakes one) and decided to include the Ulpha area based on this alone as a bit of a rest day.  The Walna Scar side/Long Mire/Park Head Road down to Ulpha looks a particularly fine valley route I doubt I'd have ever gone to without 're-jigging' the route, so thanks for that karl  O0

The Duddon/Ulpha area is a lovely and comparatively uncrowded corner of the Lakes and well worth a visit. Coincidentally I was planning a Borrowdale to Borrowdale walk before the lockdown, the idea being I'd go for a walk with the family along the eastern valley then I'd carry on through the central Lakes to the more famous Borrowdale. I still might do it this year ;)

A Mosedale to Mosedale would work well too.

Fully understand the need to block out memories of a KKPT else you'd never go on another  :D

Squeaky keeps asking "When are we camping with the Kipper Man again?" We could (obviously) do without your company but it seems Squeaky cannot  :D

We are down to Covid level three now and the country is totally [censored] financially. I suspect we will be able to stay overnight and spend our money again soon. I've taken a days hol on Fri 3rd Jul so I can pick beefy and the kipper eater up, bring 'em northward and we can meet you on the 4th somewhere  :)

Squeaky is a great pal it's such a shame she cant get rid of the hangers on  :D


I think that I should be ok to travel on the 3rd and to be truthful I'm coming up no matter what ( keep that to yourself )  ;D

Oh! You mean recruiting the family for a convenient lift? I like your thinking..  ;D


The route I came up with was definitely a bit of a slog, 17 WRs and about 90km, but one of those which you're hopefully glad you're done with by the end of it.  So many little crags, viewpoints, woods and tarns which are completely new to me in that area - seems like I could potter for a while

Wet Sleddale to Wasdale basically. Possibly could continue on to Egremont, and catch the train home on the coast.


Edit - 36 miles, taking in Harter Fell, High Street, Red Screes, Fairfield, Dead Pike, Thunacar Knott, Styhead, Great Gable and finishing with the Mosedale Horseshoe.

Cheers for that Beefy. 

Looks like a nice walk. I love the lunch spot and the drone footage.   Which drone have you got - Mavic pro air II or a Mavic pro mini
My other half is jealous.   ;D
