25th December 2010 Christmas Walk to Aira Force

After a leisurely morning and a light snack at midday we drove to Aira Force, the waterfall along side Ullswater. The weather has been freezing for so long that there should be a good display of ice at the waterfalls.


25th December 2010 Christmas Greetings

May we wish you all a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year and a big Thank You to you all with this series of Christmas Photos from our part of the Cumbria.


19/21st December 2010 Family in Cumbria

Paula and Al and family are over in Loweswater just prior to Christmas. Fortunately the serious snow has failed to materialise so their journey over was straight forward and the weather is reasonably fine.


17th December 2010 Lorton, Whinlatter (et al)

The dogs needed a walk and I needed to get over to Keswick to pick up the reprint of the Loweswatercam Calendars dispatched to work by the printer. Into Fishers on a day off . . . but with an ulterior motive, a snowy dog walk along the way.


12th December 2010 Allonby Sunset

To get away from the damp low cloud that covers the high fells we take a drive to the coast and enjoy a late afternoon walk. Big skies, wide vistas and the chance of a sunset as it emerges from beneath the cloud.


A forty eight hour long thaw in mid December and everything turns green. We take a late walk up Harrot Fell ... where you say ? ... It's at the lower end of Lorton Valley and its claim to fame is the TV mast above the woods.


8th December 2010 Buttermere and Fangs Brow

Following my morning walk to Rannerdale, Ann and I take a car ride up to the bottom of Honister Pass and enjoy some late guaranteed sunshine on another Fangs Brow walk.


An early drive to Rannerdale once the sun was up to enjoy the winter wonderland views that the current weather is offering. Just three of us out for this short drive to Rannerdale and a modest walk around Hawes Point.


6th December 2010 The Gated Road to Crummock

Roger's at work so Harry, Bethan and I set off down the deserted road towards the lake. Beautiful views down the snow covered valley today with Mellbreak to the right behind another wintery looking oak tree.


5th December 2010 Castlerigg and Keswick

After a morning walk locally, Ann and I take a drive over to Keswick but decide to visit the Castlerigg Stone Circle first. Our route takes us out of the valley on slippery roads, using the A66, as Whinlatter Pass is closed.


A beautiful sunny winter's day and the temperature is well below freezing. Time to get out and enjoy the spectacle of the winter snow in Loweswater. A walk up to the tree on Low Fell would be most suitable to start.


30th November 2010 Loweswater and Fangs Brow

Home again and we wake to overnight snow but not as heavy as Scotland and the east coast. For us though the sun shines but that easterly breeze really keeps the temperatures down for our walk today.


27th November 2010 Camberley Lake Walk

A pre Christmas visit to our family in Surrey and we are staying inside the Royal Military Academy grounds. While Ann was in town I walked with our grandson around the upper and lower lakes of Sandhurst Estate.


Mid November was notable for an early first snowfall on the high fells but then a period of delightful, if cool, late Autumn sunshine. She joined us for lunch, followed by a walk and some warm Loweswater Scones to finish.


19th November 2010 Lorton ~ One Year On

On the anniversary date of the Cumbrian Floods I have collated a selection of photos from the last twelve months, many of which I have not published before on Loweswatercam, plus some that were taken earlier today.


15th November 2010 Spout Force walk

A waterfall walk combined with a visit to the Whinlatter Forest Centre on Monday. The sunrise was lovely but the day failed to live up to expectations and a shorter walk for the benefit of the dogs was all that was required today.


13th November 2010 Binsey with Jo

Jo is up in the Lakes for a Sunday walk up Great Gable to attend the Remembrance Day ceremony at the summit. However today (Sat) we just needed a shorter walk and this one she hadn't done for quite some time.


10th November 2010 Mosedale Pool for Harry

The big weather front has moved away and before the next one arrives we have the most glorious day of early winter sunshine. Snow on the tops just adds that extra icing on the cake.


9th November 2010 Holme Force with Gareth

Very rainy days and superb blue-sky winter days have been interspersed with cold and damp interludes. No two days the same at the moment. This walk was local again as the weather only cleared towards the late afternoon.


3rd November 2010 Crummock in the Rain

We've had several of inches of rain in the last 36 hours and the water levels have risen in the area. Having delayed all day before going for a walk, we decide it's not getting any better so go for a stroll in the protection of Lanthwaite Woods.


31st October 2010 Dale Head in the Clouds

Good visibility but drifts of mountain cloud give the weather today an unusual quality. It seems misty yet it is clear and we can see for miles. John joins the three of us for a walk up Dale Head with perhaps a chance of lunch at the Honister Cafe before Jo has to leave for home.


30th October 2010 Ennerdale's Anglers Crag

Jo's over for the weekend. Unfortunately the weather's taken a bit of a dive compared to the other day, but is more than sufficient for a visit to Ennerdale and a shorter Harry style walk across to Anglers Crag and back.


A path I've been meaning to try for years now, but each time I've passed I never seem to find the start of it. Armed with a map, reading glasses and sufficient time, I try for the route ... and have several surprises along the way.


20th October 2010 Harry's Swim and Walk

While Bethan and I were enjoying the pleasures of a sunny morning on Mellbreak, Ann took Harry for another hydrotherapy session. In the afternoon the weather was still excellent so we took drove round to walk Ling Fell.


20th October 2010 Mellbreak with Bethan

The weather is brilliantly sunny again with not a cloud in the sky. Harry is off for a therapeutic"swim" this morning which leaves Bethan and I at home but this weather is just too nice to stay indoors !


19th October 2010 Knott Rigg for Harry

After his recent twisted knee, Harry has responded well to gentle treatment including several sessions of hydrotherapy. Today we chose a grassy fell that would be a gentle climb for him but would be nice for us too.


11th October 2010 Crummock and Cake

It's Bethan's 6th Birthday today so we go for a short walk on a brilliant morning here in Loweswater. Just time to walk the dogs down to Crummock Water and back before we have to be off for an afternoon appointment.


9th October 2010 St Bees and Fleswick Bay

Last time we were at St Bees we saw a footpath down to the beach that would provide a nice 3 mile walk and give us chance to visit the cliffs beneath St Bees Head. A west coast afternoon today seemed like a good idea.


7th October 2010 The High Bank Lorton track

A short walk to stretch our legs on our return home. We only needed a short walk for Harry's sake but it was a nice day so we walked the western half of the track that we walked the eastern half of earlier in the year.

25th September 2010 A Holiday Visit to North Devon

Even though we live in a nice place it doesn't stop us going away for a short holiday. We are heading for Devon (via Camberley and Stonehenge) and returning via Swansea. As we leave the lovely weather of the Lakes behind we are hoping for more of the same over the next week or so.


1. Devon via Stonehenge

2. Lynton & Lynmouth

3. Heddon & Watersmeet

23rd September 2010 Blencathra with George Fisher

An opportunity to get out on the hill to test walk clothing from Montagne. The staff splits in two so as to keep the shop open, then the morning team start out on a walk that would end in a most unexpected and unfortunate way.

19th September 2010 Scandale 24 Peaks Challenge

Another opportunity to catch a sunrise as I turn out for another Mountain Challenge. This one is slightly different as it involves 24 Lake District Peaks over the two days of the weekend. Unfortunately the forecast is not good.

16th September 2010 Wet and Dry Scale Hill Walks

To those of a technical nature, or who remember school craft lessons, "Wet & Dry" usually meant a type of sandpaper used to smooth and finish a piece of work. Here we take the literal context ... a walk with rain or a walk with no rain !

12th September 2010 Scafell 3 Peaks Challenge

This morning the alarm went off at 3.30 am . . . yes 3.30 am . . that's in the morning. I got up, ate a very early pre-breakfast breakfast, then Bethan and I were in the car and on the way by 4. It was a challenge getting up, but we were meeting folk that had been up all night.

9th September 2010 Crummock and Mellbreak

Everyone has returned home after the busy weekend. Harry has a knee problem and is confined to the garden while he recuperates, but Bethan still needs a walk each day. Here are two, in a week of nice weather.

5th September 2010 The Loweswater Show 2010

The Loweswater Show returns to a bright skies and sunshine after two missed events, washed out by poor weather. Laughter, competition, displays. Join us as we wander round the Show Ground and enjoy the sights.

4th September 2010 Neil's 214 ~ Caw and Steeple

An invitation from Neil to join in his walk amongst the Ennerdale fells, where he was hoping for a fine day to complete his enjoyable task of climbing every fell in the Wainwright guide books. Steeple here we come !

1st September 2010 Sale Fell for Harry

Another shorter walk to see how Harry is coping with his recovery. Sale is only 208th highest out of 214 Wainwright summits but it has a fine views all round that belies it's small stature ... and it has an easy path up and back.

31st August 2010 Local walks in Loweswater

A collection of local photos from the last few days. Unfortunately many of the fine days have coincided with work. The other problem is that Harry has twisted his back leg slightly and is on a weeks R&R so walks have been short and local, but that doesn't mean that they weren't enjoyable.

20th August 2010 Keswick Market & Events

A few photos from Keswick make up this set today. No particular days or events but just a photo collection of street life taken over lunchtimes.

18th August 2010 Glaramara and Bessy Boot

We try our luck again and head into the central fells where the forecast was poorer than if we stayed at home. If we stay in we would get lots of jobs done but we would miss out a hopefully interesting and sociable walk.

14th August 2010 Stoney Cove Pike

We leave the sun in Loweswater and head into the rain ... but the skies clear as forecasted and three dogs and a Herdwick have a wonderful afternoon on the fells above Hartsop Village.

12th August 2010 Place fell and the Knight

A favourite fell but without the long lakeshore path walk that we have done once already this summer. The Knight is one of many minor summits of Place Fell, but why is it picked out with its own name ?


A shorter walk in view of the weather. The King's How ascent through the woods is regarded as a wonderful Autumn walk due to the colours. It's not bad on a summer day too, but the weather could have been kinder.


On the way home we stopped for an overnight stay with Angie and David at their home in Lincolnshire. A short walk next morning to walk all three dogs found us at Clipsham's Yew Tree Avenue, a topiarist's heaven.

Thurs 5th August 2010 Sailing out of the Orwell River

Chance for the big boys to sail something a little larger than the family dinghies. A local sailor offers Richard and I an open water sail out of Shotley Marina. Peter provided the boat, we provided the lunch hamper.

3rd to 6th August 2010 Pin Mill Village and local Walks

A few days away with family in Pin Mill. We drove down to Suffolk to visit the rest of the grandchildren that we haven't seen recently. Cathy and Richard have a home in this delightful village on the banks of the River Orwell.


After the success of Scafell Pike the weather has turned again and it has been damp and grey. Two days on though, Dee and John call round and we enjoy a local walk more often done at sunset but one that would be a good one to do after the amount of rain that has fallen recently.


Our one day delay is not looking good for our walk up Scafell Pike. We chose a direct approach for a quick ascent and cross our fingers for a break in the weather so that the boys can reach the top.

26th July 2010 Low Fell with Tom & Sam

Our Grandchildren are up in the Lakes for a short break and have requested to climb Scafell Pike. With the weather today we were better off staying low . . . so Low Fell it was, after a morning of rain.


With the forecast suggesting clearer weather on the coast we set our sights west and travel over to Cleator Moor. We turn down in the town past the Rugby Club and drive a short distance up to the forest gate to start our walk this afternoon.

20th July 2010 Base Brown & Plumbago

Recent heavy rain have reduced our fell walking activity in recent weeks, but we're back up and running now with a walk from Seathwaite. The regular four plus a visiting "Loweswatercam viewer" set out on a dry day to explore the fells at the head of the Borrowdale valley.


We haven't climbed Haystacks for a while, too long in fact, so we join with Hilton and his sister in law on a fine weather ascent from Gatesgarth. A warm day but the temperature is held back by a cool breeze.


With all the dry weather this summer a walk in the Haweswater area has an added potential for interest as any low water level would tend to expose the remains of the old Mardale Village. With this in mind we drove over for a walk on the fells overlooking the head of the lake.


T'was the evening of the George Fisher Summer outing. The weather for the last few months has been warm and sunny . . .so a trip around the lake on the Keswick Steamer seemed like a good idea.


A walk today around the Back o' Skiddaw but on the eastern side above Mungrisdale. We've talked and email with Tre and Jason for some time but today was the first time we had walked with them since we met up one hot summer in Borrowdale last summer.


The Railway Children 3 Peaks weekend has become established as an annual charity fund raising event and today I'm helping supervise, as part of a team of marshals, the Cumbrian section of their walk.


On the last day of Kathryn's visit we opted for a classic low level walk incorporated with a boat ride rather than a train ride return. We're off to Ullswater to walk the lakeside path from Glenridding to Howtown.


Gary and Sheena join us for a local walk up Rannerdale. Gary wanted to try his new panorama program on a set of photos taken from the top. Rannerdale would suit Gareth and Kathryn very nicely too.


We had our son Gareth and his young lady, Kathryn up for the weekend and the weather was superb. We decide on a walk on the western side of Cumbria to show her the sea, one of the smaller fells and La'al Ratty.


This morning, or should I say more correctly last night . . . I had been asked to assist as part of a team of safety marshals on the Challenge UK Sightsavers National 3 Peaks Event. The start time for me was 3am at Greendale Mines. An early alarm call was the order of the day !

11th June 2010 Binsey and Birdsong

A walk up Binsey from the Lodge is a brief but a very nice one. As the fell stands alone on the northern end of Bassenthwaite Lake it commands a view that is more than worthy of it's diminutive status at the lower end of the Wainwright scale.


On the 80th anniversary of Alfred Wainwright's first visit to the Lakes and his first ascent of Orrest Head, the Online Fellwalking Club organised a celebratory event which includes a walk up this significant summit.

24th May to 1st June 2010 An Austrian Adventure

We were invited across by Helmut Hudler who we had met and become friends with through the OFC. He and his wife Susan met us at the airport and whisked off to an evening meal in Vienna's revolving restaurant, the Donauturm Tower for the start of a week long Austrian holiday.


1. Vienna

Fishers have asked me to set out a Gps Geo-Trail so that others can follow a route up through town onto Walla Crag, returning by the lakeside, to enjoy some of the best local views and attractions. Who am I to refuse ?


Friends of our daughter phoned to say they were staying locally and would like to join us for a walk. Never one to turn down such an opportunity, the dogs and I go off to to meet them at Buttermere.


Sunshine and clear visibility again. Bill and Sherran are up on holiday and they suggest a walk to Rannerdale to see the flowers. They might just be reaching their best about now so it would be a good time to check them out.


Sunshine and clear visibility today found us on the Far Eastern Fells. Accompanied by Jo and John, we take the steep climb up from Hartsop past Hayeswater towards Kidsty Pike.


Buttermere is regarded as the "Mere or Lake of Earl Beothar", so today we walk from the village, round the Mere and back to the village, a path that we haven't walked in full for quite some time.

8th May 2010 Low Fell with Jill

It's the weekend again and we've a visitor over who has spent far too long away from the lakes. I's also a sunny day with the prospect of cloud later so after an early lunch, a favourite local walk is on the cards for Ann and Jill.

4th May 2010 Mellbreak with Ian

Ian was over from Seascale and so I let him suggest a fell for today. He is gradually completing his second round of fells and mentioned that Mellbreak south top was yet to do. So that was decided !


Today we had the best forecast of the Bank Holiday weekend so we head for the fells. The committee decision on the day was to climb Green Gable and return over the high tops of Brandreth and Grey Knotts.


Roger's in work today so it's just three of us for a walk this morning. We decide to walk to Walla Crag and then on to Bleaberry Fell. An extended ridge walk takes us to High Seat and down to Ashness Bridge.


It's the weekend again after a changeable week weather wise. It seems it keeps the bad weather forecast for our organised days out. I wonder if the wintery showers will materialise ?

25th April 2010 The Grasmere T2T Walk

A change in the weather forces a change of plans as there is no point in venturing high into the clouds. We're in Grasmere so an alternative plan is hatched over some early refreshments.

22nd April 2010 A Gasgale Gill Ramble

Another shorter afternoon walk after a busy morning and we decide to walk up Gasgale Gill to see the effect of the winter floods and how they have affected the footpath up the valley.


A three hour window on a fine day finds us in Ennerdale for a walk up to Bowness Knott. We were determined to reach the view point, but our way ahead was severely curtailed by the lack of a path through the old plantation.

20th April 2010 A Cinderdale Ramble

A favourite local walk round Crummock water takes most of the day but it can be split into small sections and one such smaller part provides us with an excellent short walk in this week's lovely weather.


Following yesterday's Yorkshire walk we stayed on at Liz's house overnight and ventured out onto Ilkley Moor on the Sunday ... without any visible vestige of head-wear it must be said.

17th April 2010 Buckden Pike with the OFC

Today was an official OFC walking day . . . that is, someone has put the extra effort in to plan, check and publicise the walk in advance of it happening! So it was with Dave and Josie's summons ringing in our ears we set off over the county boundary into 'injun' country.


The sunny weather continues but it is a working day for Roger. Consequently it was a girls only trip up one of our local fells in order to enjoy the views and exercise the dogs this sunny Sunday.

10th April 2010 Lonscale and Skiddaw

A total change of weather and a change of area too as we walk in the northern fells today. Neil would like to walk two more of the fells that he hasn't yet climbed, so it's off to Gale Road car park near Keswick.

8th April 2010 The Screes and Miterdale

An unofficial OFC outing found nine of us in Eskdale on a day when the weather was less than clement. After an eventful start the walk progressed normally apart from one or two more unusual events.


An afternoon walk became un-walkable . . . so we had a change of plans and chose a nearby valley instead, walking a path that we had never trod before. All the while we were being watched . . . by "big" but not "big brother".

3rd April 2010 Rannerdale with David

With such a poor forecast for the English Lakes this Easter we were surprised to see the sun at all but when the clouds rolled back yet again today it was a real bonus to enjoy beautiful conditions once more.

2nd April 2010 Whin Ben and Whiteside

The late spring snow is starting to melt rapidly and poor weather was forecasted for the afternoon, so a morning walk was advisable today. It's been a busy morning, so a quick walk is called for once the jobs were done.

31st March 2010 Easter Snow

Snow was forecasted but all the signs yesterday implied it would only be on the high fells. We awoke this morning to a different picture.

27th March 2010 An Aiken Beck Round

A roughly circular round behind Whinlatter forest where the sheltered valley tracks gave way to an exposed ridge walk and where the cold north westerly breeze really showed it's ability to cool given half a chance.


John, a Loweswatercam viewer, is up on holiday in our part of the Lake District. He has never climbed Mellbreak so bribes us with a meal out in return for guiding duties up the steep northern face of our local fell.


An midday walk up one of the iconic Lakeland peaks for John, Jo and Ann and myself. Surprisingly few people on top but a surprise from the people we did actually meet.


A trip to the south west of the Cumbrian Lakes to climb two minor peaks. Despite their size, they are deserving of praise as the walking through undulating countryside and rough crags is of top quality.


It's always great to meet up with friends and this week Bill and Sherran are up in the Lakes. Together we climb Loughrigg Fell, a popular fell and Sherran's favourite but we chose a route we haven't done before.


A walk today on a nice but hazy day turned cold as the clouds descend on the back of Skiddaw. We walked to Bakestall summit and so completed the northern section of our third round of the Wainwright Fells.

2nd March 2010 Silver How in the snow

A beautifully sunny winter's day coincides with time off work so we travel over Dunmail Raise for a walk across to Silver How. Silver was a good description as the late winter snow glistened in the afternoon sunshine.

1st March 2010 Dale Head and the Mines

A quick trip out to exercise the dogs turned into a really nice walk up and back to Dale Head. Early cloud caused a few shadows but on the return by an unusual route, the sun broke through and full colour returned to the fells.

28th February 2010 Middle Fell in Wasdale

Five members of the Online Fellwalking Club gather for a walk in Wasdale overlooking "Britain's Favourite View" that of Great Gable and the Scafells from the shores of Wastwater.

27th February 2010 Fellbarrow Extended

A local walk with friends takes on a new light as we take a right turn at the start instead of continuing on the normal path. The winter weather really helped make this walk special too.

22nd February 2010 Non-Arctic Darling Fell

Following Saturday's very wintery conditions, today the weather has improved significantly and we take the opportunity to climb a local fell to enjoy the late afternoon sunshine.

21st February 2010 Arctic Grisedale Pike

A walk planned when the weather was brilliant takes on a whole new aspect as the clouds come in and it starts snowing. Grisedale, even though it was just 1500ft above the valley takes on a real Arctic feel as we climb for the top.

13th to 19th February 2010 Half Term Walks

A combination of photos from our other walks over this holiday period.

16th February 2010 Melbreak with Thomas

A walk up our local fell for myself and my grandson, but a search for a boggy puddle turns into a bit of an unexpected adventure.

15th February 2010 The Low Fell Tree walk

Our daughter, grandchildren and a friend are up for a few days so we chose a local walk that suited the rather inclement weather today. Let's climb up that mountain till we get to the big tree . . .

5th/ 6th/ 7th February 2010 The Tethera Valley Play 2010

The scene is set in a London apartment and follows chat show host Patrick who is expecting his new TV boss for drinks. His womanising neighbour Trevor leaves a girl in his flat . . . just at the wrong moment.

6th February 2010 Blake Fell from Cogra Moss

A great day in prospect so we set off to complete the full round of Blake Fell from the western side. Normally we climb Blake from our (Loweswater) side but today we climbed fells and paths that we had never walked before.

3rd February 2010 Fleetwith and Black Star

Despite some ice on the road up Gatesgarthdale, we make the top of Honister Pass for a walk up on Fleetwith Pike. Great visibility but grey skies but a change of circumstances on the hill below us forces us to return home a different way.

1st February 2010 Knott Rigg and Moss Force

Tonight we were due at a Chris Bonnington / Doug Scott lecture evening at Rheged so today we had a shorter walk. It was up onto the cold fells of Buttermere to check out a local waterfall and the view east from the top.

31st January 2010 The Knock Murton Track

A shorter walk today due to afternoon commitments, but the weather was so nice we had to get out and decided to walk to the high level path around the back of Knock Murton to look down on Cogra Moss.

30th January 2010 High Rigg and Tewet Tarn

Roger is busy today with the Tethera Players stage set so I venture off in search of quiet fells and restful places. High Rigg was calling but it was Tewet tarn that was quiet and peaceful this lovely day.

27th January 2010 Rannerdale at Twilight

A brief walk before the sun disappeared as the dogs needed an escape from the house. The late afternoon sun gave everything in the valley a pink tinge which increased as we entered the valley but had gone by the time we returned.

19th January 2010 Hope Beck Valley and Dodd

The slight problem of a lost mobile phone raised it's head yesterday, so today I repeated Ann's walk of yesterday in an attempt to find the lost item. Fortunately she chose a nice place to walk, so today I walked, head down at times, on a circuit of the upper Hope Beck Valley

17th January 2010 Ling Fell with Ann

A Sunday afternoon trip but still a great little walk up Ling Fell. The snow has thawed rapidly in recent days but this low north western fell has a great view to check out many of the high fells around it.

10th January 2010 Not Rannerdale Knotts

Jill, Nigel and I tried for a nice walk up Rannerdale Knotts but as we climbed, so the wind got up to the extent that it become unpleasant. That would be the time to turn around and enjoy the other delights of Buttermere, on offer at a lower level.


Jill and Nigel are up to stay for a few days and so we rush out to enjoy the continuing sunshine and blue skies. They don't know the local area that well so we chose a route to enjoy all the local sights.

8th January 2010 Snowy Walla Crag for sunset

A chance to see iced over lakes combined with a blue sky sunset from Walla Crag above Keswick. Ann and I climb the short distance from Castlerigg Farm to the summit overlooking Derwent Water and enjoy panoramic views again.

7th January 2010 Keswick in the Snow

With the fine and very cold weather this is remarkable times for the keen photographer. Unfortunately I have to be in work today so I pack my camera along with an extra pair of gloves and head of in the car.

6th January 2010 Mellbreak for a photo again

A second go at getting that illusive snowy panorama from the top of Mellbreak. I stand a better chance today compared to two days ago because it's a blue sky and sunshine day with not a cloud in the sky.

5th January 2010 Fangs Brow in the freezer

With a low wintery sun at this time of year we wanted a walk that was not totally "in the freezer" as the temperatures in Cumbria, like most of the UK at this time, is unusually and consistently below freezing.We drove a short distance to the other end of Loweswater Lake and walked back at a higher level.

4th January 2010 Mellbreak for a Photo

It's another beautiful morning and the snow is still about but the roads are a little clearer and traffic is moving . . . not that you get a lot of traffic in Loweswater. Time for a local walk.

2nd January 2010 Barrow & Outerside

Poorer weather, well no sun or blue skies, and just three lads this time. Recent freeze and thaw has left many of the paths and roads very icy but away from the trodden routes the snow was easy walking ... provided it wasn't to deep !
