Cold Fell

Looking north from Cold Fell
A scorching day, ideal for flogging up pathless heather, rush and bog! This is the Cold Fell at the northern end of the Pennines, and is a "Marilyn". This is an another area I had never walked in before, pleasingly quiet and as mentioned earlier pathless. I was able to make a circuit via Brown Hill, following the fence line to the summit, which has a magnificent cairn, wind shelter and trig. Back to the car visiting a prominent nameless cairn and the few houses at Howgill. There are numerous mines in the area about which I know nothing, so swotting on the internet will need to be done! It should be mentioned that the view north into Scotland is vast, all laid out below you.
