Silver How

Silver How

Central Lake District

Route: Silver How

Area: Central Lake District

Date of walk: 10th January 2014

Walkers: Andrew

Distance: 4.1 miles

Ascent: 900 feet

I parked by Grasmere Church and put the required fee in the honesty box, plus a bit more for luck, and left the village following an easy track past Allen Bank

The way to the top of Silver How was easy and from the top I admired the view back over Grasmere and Rydal Water. It was a dull day with low cloud so the views were restricted, which was a shame

I followed the easy ridge down for a while and then turned back along the lower slopes of the fell to return to Grasmere

Despite the indifferent weather, it had been an enjoyable walk in beautiful surroundings
