Lingmoor Fell....A Christmas Day Walk

Superb weather good not to climb a hill even a small one! I chose Lingmoor Fell and was on "the Trail" just after 10am. Having parked in Chapel Stile, I walked up through the quarries and into Base Brown wood. Once on the open fell the views open up....and I met the first people of the day!...coming down!! Here's a few images from the day....

East to Loughrigg and beyond

West along the broad summit ridge

Pano from the summit of Lingmoor Fell

Crinkle Crags and Bowfell

Side Pike 

Looking back at "Fat Mans Agony" ...good job this was undertaken before Christmas Dinner!

From Side Pike I descended to pick up the Cumbria Way...great views of the "Pikes"

The bridge here near Oak Howe was in the sun so I stopped for a snack...just a flat stroll back to the car.
An excellent walk, the Strava track is here should anyone wish to see my route in more detail.


  1. It was indeed a lovely day. Gorgeous here in Anglesey too. Thought I was in the med until I needed to put 2 layers on. Merry Christmas Alistair.

  2. Merry Christmas to you as well Alan.
    Anglesey is a beautiful island....enjoy!
