Western Lake District

Route: Fellbarrow

Area: Western Lake District

Date of walk: 31st March 2013

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 6 miles

Ascent: 1,200 feet

I parked near the bridge over the River Cocker in Low Lorton. After crossing the bridge I followed the old Mosser road which is unfit for cars. There were great views to Scotland over the Solway Firth

I left the Mosser road at its highest point and followed a track for a short distance before turning uphill to reach the top of Fellbarrow

I descended to join the lovely path, with its classic view of Crummock Water, which leads down into Thackthwaite

I then walked back into Low Lorton along the quiet lane

A hat trick of great walks in the last three days
