Todays images were taken while out walking a circuit from Little Town in the heart of the Derwent Fells mountains in the English Lake District. It starts by walking up to Maiden Moor via Yewthwaite Comb before moving on to the summit of High Spy. Excellent spot with stunning views of Borrowdale and Derwent Water.
We then dropped down towards Dalehead Tarn before making our way up to the summit of Dale Head. Some lovely light surrounded the Summit Cairn offering up beautiful views of the valley of Newlands Beck, summits of High Spy, Maiden Moor with Skiddaw and Blencathra in the distance.
Next up was Hindscarth before heading off to the summit of Robinson. This summit makes a great spot for wild camping, terrific views across Buttermere and Crummock Water. You’ll need to bring your water with you as there is no tarn near by.
From the summit of Robinson, we made our way down the ridge towards High Snab Bank before dropping down to Newlands Beck and back round to Little Town.
We’ve walked this route many times from the opposite direction but never via Maiden Moor first, don’t know why but we will sure be going this way again. Lovely views of Dale Head and views looking down the Mountain Ridge of High Snab Bank looked incredible. Makes for a great day out. The route isn’t too long, about 9 miles with approximately 3400 feet of ascent. It’s best to arrive early as there are limited parking spaces.
