today's misty walk: Hugill Fell and Reston Scar


entering Staveley from the west


my return bus stop is opposite complete with toilet ..


.. twinned with this one in Cambodia - what a brilliant idea!


looking down the River Kent from Barley Bridge


looking upstream from Barley Bridge


looking down as I climb into the mist


"Wainwright's" summit - now without a large cairn - and today without the view into Kentmere


the possibly higher northwest top - also now cairnless


the highest (west) top which was not accessible in Wainwright's day but now with a path and gates through the walls


the cairn on Reston Scar


Kemp Tarn


dropping below the mist with Staveley below


the damp and narrow path back to Barley Bridge


the riverside path back to Staveley


reflections in the River Kent


Hawkshead Brewery


fish ladder beside the weir


bridge into Staveley


looking back up the river to the weir ..


.. and again with the brewery on the left


the old church tower


the bus stop and village hall with Reston Scar still in mist beyond
