Sorry, but I’ve had to cancel this walk due to a lack of interest.

Meeting Point: Car Park at Mardale Head
Meeting Time: 08:45 for 09:00 Start

Car Parking/Public Transport: Car Park at Mardale Head, bottom end of Haweswater Reservoir
Ascent: 880m (approx)

Terrain: Mostly on rocky paths.
Out of the car park we’ll head up Gatescarth Pass and then up on to Harter Fell (778m) for some great views of Haweswater. Then down into Nan Bield Pass and up the other side on to High Street (828m) for more views in a westerly direction across to Hart Crag, Fairfield and the Helvellyn range. Our descent is via Kidsty Pike (780m) although a quick side trip to High Raise (802m) can be made should people wish. Once we’re back down to the reservoir it’s a short walk around and back to the car park.
At the time of writing, weather is good for Saturday. Although, it’s the Lake District, anything can happen! Please check weather and bring appropriate gear and hiking shoes, also including plenty of water if the weather is hot.
Please contact David on 07599 749450 by 6pm on Friday 16th November to confirm your attendance.
