High Rigg

High Rigg

Central Lake District

Route: High Rigg

Area: Central Lake District

Date of walk: 15th June 2013

Walkers: Andrew Gilly and David

Distance: 5.8 miles

Ascent; 1,300 feet

We parked near Legburthwaite and made our way up Wren Crag to gain the ridge

There were lots of ups and downs along the long ridge. After about 1.5 miles, the summit of High Rigg was finally reached, from where there were lovely views, particularly of Blencathra

The descent was straightforward, and after reaching the bottom we joined the path which leads back round the eastern flank of the fell, with St John’s in the Vale on our left

There were good views across the vale to the craggy features of Clough Head

Just before we reached the car, we treated ourselves to tea and home made scones at Low Bridge End Farm – a good way to round off a really enjoyable walk
