Buck Tor, Doublewaters and Berra Tor

Well November seems to have been mostly about the rain, either it was about to rain or it always was. The temperatures stayed pretty mild throughout meaning the south west was hit by wave after wave of rain clouds. I managed only two walks in the whole month which was a pretty poor effort for…

Back on Dartmoor around Eylesbarrow and Nun’s Cross

I’d been back from the Lakes for over a week and hadn’t ventured to Dartmoor, a mix of work and poor weather when I had a day off, left me bereft of good walking opportunities. Well I decided to take a gamble on a day were the rain was due to arrive around 2pm, hoping…

Tarn Hows

Such a good walk this one, if you have National Trust membership then start from the main car park beside the lake. If not then there is another car park to the west just off the road to Coniston. Either way this is a lovely hour walk in glorious surroundings, with views to the Coniston…

Yoke, Ill Bell and Froswick

I had a choice of a few walks for this day, i could head to Great Gable or maybe pick off some behind Skiddaw. But this time I decided to finish off the Far Eastern Fells. This is my first book of the Wainwright’s that I have finished and one that I thought would be…

Aira Force
