Lingmoor Fell

Lingmoor Fell

Southern Lake District

Route: Lingmoor Fell

Area: Southern Lake District

Date of walk: 7th July 2013

Walkers: Andrew and Gilly

Distance: 5.4 miles

Ascent: 1,300 feet

We parked at Elterwater and crossed the bridge to start the climb up to Lingmoor Fell. The weather was hot – about 23c – and we were soon puffing and panting

The climbing was easy though, and it wasn’t long before we reached the main ridge leading to the summit

From here there were wonderful views, and the Langdale Pikes could be seen in all their glory. Just below the summit cairn we feasted on the view – and on our cheese and pickle sandwiches

We retraced our steps for a short distance and then headed back down an alternative path to Elterwater, from which we had good views over the Langdale valley

By the time we got back to Elterwater we were parched, but were able to slake our thirst at the Britannia Inn – a great end to a great walk
