a work party on Knipescar clearing a right of way blocked by gorse


the Knipescar ridge from the path onto Knipescar


heading up the path onto Knipescar


looking back down the path


zooming in on Haweswater from the work site


the right of way completely blocked by gorse


Bob trying to start a fire to burn up the gorse


looking north from the Knipescar ridge


turning back south towards the very smoky fire


sunshine on Cross Fell from the east side of the Knipescar ridge


heading back to the fire from the east side


a new site for the fire as we were warned it might be damaging the limestone wall


feeding the fire with large cuttings of gorse


the cleared path - but there is still more to do lower down


Cross Fell and the Dun Fells as some of us walk the bridleway eastwards


well preserved limekiln beside the bridleway
