Lake District walks - Place Fell

These pictures were taken when visibility was limited, which was a pity, since the view, especially to the west, is something special.

Here we are looking north-west, down on Patterdale village, on the walk to Boardale Hause. You can see the path across the valley to Side Farm on the right.

From the same viewpoint, looking south. You can see Brotherswater in front of the Kirkstone Pass, with Red Screes in the far distance. Boardale Hause is just up to the left from here.

This is the fell, as seen from Boardale Hause.  You can see the path to the top.

And this is the summit cairn when approaching from Boardale Hause.


Looking down on Glenridding and Ullswater from the top of Place Fell. This is where you would normally be able to see all the Helvellyn range in the near distance - but not today!

From near the top of Place Fell, looking north over the northern end of Ullswater. The low peak slightly obscuring the lake is Hallin Fell, which offers a good "family walk", often combined with a steamer ride between Howtown, below the fell, and Glenridding. Be warned: Ullswater steamers are in a different league from the Derwentwater launch - they're larger, faster, have further to go, and cost more. You also need to check the timetable before you start out.


Here are two of the steamers, at the Glenridding terminal
