Looking down onto Buttermere from the top of Fleetwith Pike. Not a difficult walk if you park at the car park on Honister Pass

Philip on the summit of Pike Of Stickle in the Langdales. It is walkable from Raise Cottage but on this particular day we drove to the New Dungeon Ghyll and walked up to Stickle Tarn, then onto Harrison and the Pike.

Easedale Tarn. This is an easy walk, best done after heavy rain to appreciate the waterfalls. Often busy at the weekends so get up there early on. Ideal for swimming, take some bread to feed the minows.

Calf Crag and Gibson Knott. Ignore Wainwright, the best ascent of Helm Crag is via Greenburn. You avoid the crowds, it is not as steep, and the approach from Calf Crag affords splendid views of Grasmere.

Alcock Tarn

More appropriately, The Tarn at Butter Crag. Ignore Wainwright, this is far from a dreary sheet of water.

Great Rigg. The small beck is ‘The tumultuous Green-head Ghyll’, the setting for Michael. The sheep-fold is on the right hand side opposite the old copper mines. It really bears no resemblence to a sheep-fold and is probably what is left over from the old mine. The ‘Evening Star’ can be found at the tarn. I doubt very much that it is at Michaels Fold in Above Beck as it would not have had the prospect. By chance there is a sheep-fold by the old sheperd’s hut at the tarn on Butter Crag.

The Lion and The Lamb. There are two, the one on the left is more apparent especially when viewed from the Swan, the one on the right hand side is often called ‘The Howitzer’ when viewed from Dunmail.

IMG_2408

The tarn at Butter Crag, that is its original name. Now called Alcock Tarn. Never a dreary sheet of water!

IMG_2413

The Tarn again, those acquainted with Michael will be able to search out and find the Evening Star, with large prospect, north and south, High into Easdale, up to Dunmail-Raise, and westward to the village near the lake…..

IMG_2421

Walk through the gap in this wall o find the Evening Star.
