3 short walks up subHuMPs: Quarrystone Bank, Barrock Fell and Greystoke Forest


the bridleway from the A66 towards Quarrystone Bank


light snow on the bridleway


looking north from the bridleway before it enters the forest


the bridleway in the forest


the ill-defined summit is somewhere near here


frozen pond below the summit


descending near the northern edge of the forest


looking east to the Pennines as I emerge from the forest


zooming in on Dufton Pike (I think)

...................................


the track onto Barrock Fell from the northwest


abandoned quarry with a strange carved cross


looking east from the north ridge of Barrock Fell


Barrock Fell summit


view southeast from the summit


Barrock Fell summit from the south


looking south from the slopes of Barrock Fell ..


.. and zooming in west to Blencathra and Carrock Fell


looking back up Barrock Fell from the lane

..........................................


track from The Larches into Greystoke Forest


a sprinkling of snow on the forest road


direct access to the summit is blocked by this large quarry


track towards the trig point which can just be seen in the distance ..


.. but awkward territory must be crossed to reach it
