Murton is one of the small villages lying under the Pennines. These sandstone clad villages at the edge of the Eden valley are connected by lots of footpaths and bridleways. Although I've walked many of them there are still gaps here and there. So today we set off from Murton to fill one or two gaps below of what we saw!

As we left the car park in Murton, Murton Pike filled the view. But our route would skirt the edge of  the fell as we headed North. 

The path was there, but more like a sheep trod. Keisley Bank was far as I can remember I haven't visited the top. So I'll have to remedy that at some point.

The path contours into Trundale Gill, here High Cup started to come into view.

After some lunch beside the gill we headed for Harbour Flatts.
There's an unusual view of High Cup from here.

Rural wandering led through Brackenthwaite and Flakebridge Wood. Another path followed Murton Beck back to the village. Roman Fell (seen above) filled the view for much of the return leg of the walk.
