BBC, the beautiful world we live in – Lake District

The BBC is using one of our images in an article about wasting the beautiful world we live in. The image is from the summit of Hopegill Head with views of Ladyside Pike, Hope Gill, Swinside and Lorton Vale in the distance.

The route we took to capture this started out from Braithwaite taking the track that leads up Sleet How towards Grisedale Pike. You get terrific views of Hopegill Head, Crag Hill and Grasmoor from the summit of Grisedale Pike.

It’s then on to Hopegill Head with stunning views all around. We then descended to Coledale Hause and onto the summits of Crag Hill, Sail and Causey Pike before making our way back round to Braithwaite.
