Woodland Fell and Beacon Fell

At the moment, I’m walking my way through Wainwright’s Outlying Fells. IMG_1259Yesterday morning, two of us headed out towards High Furness to tackle the Woodland Fell walk – which also takes in Beacon Tarn. The views were stunning; although, at one point, we got a little lost looking for “a prominent depression” and an “ancient cairn” (which was impossible to spot from the adjacent fell)! Fortunately we found both eventually. woodland fell

Beacon Tarn.

This morning we decided to approach the same range of hills, but from Coniston side this time, to complete Wainwright’s ‘Beacon Fell’ walk.

  1. I would really like to walk in the Lake District and I have looked a few of Wainwright’s walks too but sadly though I am English I live now in Belgium and every time I try to get to the Lakes I just don’t have the time… At the moment I am in Sutton Coldfield at my parents but just can’t get there… Thanks for sharing..
