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
