A quick bimble around Haweswater

A gorgeous evening and perfect opportunity for an evening walk to tidy up some wainwrights. Tanya, Tilly and Gary came to join us. We arranged to meet at the bottom of Haweswater.

It was lovely to see Tanya again.

As we set off up the clearly marked path, we heard lots of beeping of a car horn. Walked on, only for it to get more frequent! As we turned round saw that Stu and his dogs were waving furiously! That’s Stu not the dogs!

So we waited for him to catch up and headed up to our first summit Branstree. It was a steady walk up not too taxing.

Soon the summit was in sight and it was a disappointing summit marker! Branstree my 148th wainwright.

From here it was a well marked path over to Selside pike. There were some very large impressive stone cairns en route.
