A Walk

Bleaberry Fell from Ashness Bridge

Leader: Pete Rutland

Report & Photos by Pete Rutland

Eight of us set out from Ashness Bridge on a walk that went according to plan. Fortune favoured the brave in that it looked all day that at any moment we would get drowned by the rain which looked inevitable. As it turned out we only suffered from minor drizzle. Most of the time we had some sort of view that can only be described as being atmospheric. We sumitted Bleaberry Fell in good time moving onto High Seat then High Tove. It was a quick lunch on High Seat, although warm enough when moving it was a bit cold sitting about.


At times the ground was a bit boggy but could have been a lot worse. As we went across to Armboth things were not as bad as I had feared and it was reasonably dry. It was very rewarding that everyone was impressed with Armboth and in particular Moira instantly fell in love with it, vowing to return at least once a year. (Its all beyond me). Anyway as we stood there on the crags a small group of deer ran by which was a nice highlight of our visit to this remote little hill.


We then returned to High Tove and went down to Watendlath and on back to Ashness Bridge. All in all a pretty good day, thanks to everyone who turned out.
