Sour Howes

Far Eastern Lake District

Route: Sour Howes and Sallows

Area: Far Eastern Lake District

Date of walk: 22nd May 2013

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 5.5 miles

Ascent: 1,300 feet

These two fells are in the far south east of the Lake District, and their remote location means that the route will never be crowded. I didn’t pass another walker during the entire journey

I parked at Church Bridge near Troutbeck and after a short distance joined the track known as Garburn Road. This provides a gentle ascent. After about 2 miles I left the track to turn uphill to Sallows

I then went along Moor Head to Sour Howes. There were lovely views of Windermere from the top

There followed an easy descent back to the Garburn Road, from where I retraced my steps back to Church Bridge
