So today would be the walk up Helm Crag. The starting point would be the gorgeous village of Grasmere and from there we’ll head up into the Fells. First being that of Steel Fell, then onto Calf Crag, moving towards Gibson Knott, finishing with the fascinating Lion and Lamb. Also known as Helm Crag. This would be a windy adventure in the Lake District but one with happy memories.

Walla Crag is a fantastic walk with some amazing views overlooking Derwent Water as well as the stunning Catbells, Skiddaw and the beautiful town of Keswick. Walla Crag standing at 379m isn’t one of the highest Wainwright’s but it is another one to tick off. This walk up to Walla Crag and Bleaberry Fell takes you to one of the most photographed places in the Lake District too, Ashness Bridge.

It goes without saying if you want any other information regarding Walla Crag then please feel free to check our information page out.

So Latrigg is another epic little Wainwright to walk in the Lake District. Perhaps one of the most popular with it being so close to the nearby town of Keswick. And for its close proximity to the grand Skiddaw too. Our walk up to Latrigg was misty and damp but our moods didn’t wander. An easy family-friendly Wainwright to bag in Cumbria.

If you dear reader would like any other information regarding Latrigg in its beauty for you walk then do feel free to check out our information page. It has a good value about places to park and different…

This stunning walk to the Wainwright of Haystacks would be one to remember. Not only does it include Fleetwith Pike which for me holds some of the best views in the Lake District. But it is also the place where Alfred Wainwright’s ashes were scattered at Innominate Tarn. The inspiration and man who made climbing the Fells in the Lake District easier for us all.

Loweswater for us is a place of pure beauty. Firstly it has amazing routes around, both low and high level walks. Secondly, for the surrounding Wainwrights that are easily accessible from Loweswater. And thirdly, for its pure beauty. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the bigger lakes in the Lake District, but still enjoy nature at its best, then this is the perfect place.

Facts of Loweswater

Loweswater is owned of course by the National Trust. And each year it holds its own Loweswater show, which has traditional Cumbrian sports. …

On an extremely mild day, we started our walk up Castle Crag from Grange. At just under 300m/1000ft it is the smallest Wainwright to be included on the list, but don’t let that make you think it’s not to be taken seriously. Because Castle Crag Fell has some of the most interesting features of them all, including the famous Millican Dalton’s Cave.

Again it goes without saying if you want any further information regarding Castle Crag itself then please feel free to check out our information page here.
