Lake District:
Hard Knott, the Beach, Setmurthy Common and Arnside Knott

21 August - Hard Knott

From the south looking across to the summit of Hard Knott, with Crinkle Crags behind

From the same point, looking into upper Eskdale, with the glorious rugged mountain scenery of the Sca Fell massif

22 August 2005 - Dogs at Roanhead

George and Ellie running on the sands at Roanhead near Dalton-in-Furness, with the windmills at Millom across the Duddon Channel

A one-legged dog?


22 August 2005 - Setmurthy Common (Watch Hill)

Watch Hill and beyond it Setmurthy Common are on the left, with the Skiddaw massif on the right

An interested local looks on as Stephen makes his way up the ridge

The view to the south, with Grasmoor just to the right of centre

Looking ahead along the ridge from Watch Hill to the highest point on Setmurthy Common. While only 254m/833ft above sea level, its isolation means that it qualifies as a Marilyn and provides good views: as well as northern Lakeland, the Isle of Man was in view and Burrow Head in Galloway.


23 August 2005 - Arnside Knott

After dropping Lucy and Ellie off at Oxenholme station, Stephen and George travelled to Arnside Knott on a gloomy afternoon which presaged some much-needed rain

The trig point on the summit of Arnside Knott - recently promoted to become the 180th English Marilyn

A panoramic view across the Kent estuary: a very pleasant little hill.
