a patrol for the Lake District National Park

map of the route - sorry it's not very sharp

the right of way goes through the left hand gate

slate bridge and stile on the footpath

looking into St John's in the Vale and High Rigg

stile looking east towards Great Mell Fell

looking west

this bath should perhaps be submitted to http://www.bath-in-a-field.co.uk

Great Mell Fell and Little Mell Fell

looking up Blease Gill to the ridge of Blencathra

the return path passes through this field with no sign of a bull (fortunately!)

stile climbing ewes

looking westwards over the same stile

looking up Gate Gill to the ridge of Blencathra

kennels of the Blencathra Fell Pack

the steep and rough path below the kennels

I decided to walk UP it rather than down so made another visit to the hounds

Clough Head now clear of cloud

the Vale of St John from the return path
