today's walk (Keswick rambling club): Nateby - Pendragon Castle - Lammerside Castle - Wharton Hall - Nateby


our starting point in the village of Nateby


heading out of Nateby


Wharton Hall from our outward route (closer pics on the way back)


limestone walls and an old limekiln


you might just make out the nine cairns on Nine Standards Rigg on this zoomed in shot


the Carlisle to Settle railway with Wild Boar Fell beyond


our tunnel under the railway with an awkward stile ..


.. on the other side an unusual concrete stile


looking east to Mallerstang Edge


sunshine at last heading towards Wild Boar Fell


a very hairy fell pony and its lively foal


looking north


the first view of Pendragon Castle from the road


a closer view from the road


no access to the castle ..


.. but since the gate opened easily we decided to ignore this restriction - steps built into the castle


looking north from the castle


Pendragon Castle from the south


heading north above the River Eden
