today's walk (Keswick rambling club): Knipescar

setting out past the Crown and Mitre in Bampton Grange

crossing the River Lowther by a road bridge ..

.. and further downstream by this wobbly suspension footbridge

looking back at the footbridge

Butterwick seen over the river from our coffee stop

looking down on Knipe Hall from the track to High Knipe

stone barn at High Knipe

heading northeast on a bridleway

this village is Helton with Moor Divock beyond

lime kiln beside the track

zooming east to Cross Fell, Little Dun Fell and Great Dun Fell

on the escarpment of Knipescar

looking west over Bampton and the Lowther valley to the far eastern fells

the top of Knipescar is marked by a sunken trignometrical station

zooming north to Blencathra ..

.. and west to Bampton Grange

looking back at Knipescar from the descent path

inspecting another lime kiln
