Great Mell Fell

Eastern Lake District

Route: Great Mell Fell

Area: Eastern Lake District

Date of walk: 27th August 2013

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 2.3 miles

Ascent: 800 feet

I parked in the layby near Brownrigg Farm and walked up the lane along the lower flanks of the fell

A path turns off the lane heading uphill and it’s an easy 30 minute climb to the top. The fell lacks the attributes of a true mountain – it’s more of a big hill, but it has the advantage of being isolated from neighbouring fells, so commands good views in all directions

Having taken in the views, I started back down via a different path which soon linked up with ascent path, and it was a simple case of retracing my steps back to the layby

It had been a very pleasant hour’s diversion
