A bit snowy on Foggintor

The forecast said there could be snow overnight, followed by hail the next morning. So the plan was made to at least go and have a look, I had a walk in mind however as the snow was due to be sporadic the location of the walk could change. The plan was Princetown or somewhere…

Royal Hill and Prince Hall Rocks

This walk took in another new area for me and an extension of a walk I have done before. The area north of the Blackbrook and hemmed in by the West Dart river is a section of land that ends with Prince Hall Rocks. There is a little wooden bridge that allows for a nice…

The Coledale Horseshoe

Tarn Hows

It was Wednesday morning and we decided on another walk. This made it 4 walks in 4 days for me, which was nice! We only wanted a short walk as we had visitors to meet at lunchtime, however we had done all the obvious ones around Keswick. We decided on a longer drive but a…
