A short day due to other commitments, so a short drive to the north end of Hampsfell. We strolled along the "restricted byway" back towards the summit, and view indicator. The path/bridleway twisted through woods, quiet paddocks and the open areas of limestone pavement. Sadly the view was not the best, a bit to hazy for the distant vista. We took lunch just below the top looking over Cartmel, before we headed back north on a roundabout route to the car.
