Circuit of Hen Comb, Gavel Fell, Blake Fell, Burbank fell, during pandemic crisis.Mountainhikes19/03/2020
From Loweswater phone box, via Melbreak, Hen Comb and Gavel Fell.MichaelF30/11/2019
5/7 Birketts Owsen fell, Burnbank Fell, Loweswater End on Carling Knott, Carling Knott, Blake Fell, Sharp Knott, High Hows Lamplugh. All from Lamplugh Church. Walked up road to North for about a mile to get open access to fell to avoid upsetting the farmers and on way down to High Hows had to tackle the closed forestry section - which was feasible because it was Sunday so no chopping down today. Need to go steady down the track muddy but ok. Then went to Cogra Moss reservoir and used footpaths back to church. Nice round. 4 hours.nickywood120/10/2019

From Burnbank we followed the fence to the wind shelter summit. Luckily wasn’t too bad for bog like I was expecting. Stunning views across to the sea and Scotland and the hidden water of Cogra moss and the edge of Ennerdale Water . Hard to stand up the wind was blowing a hooley and at one point blew my phone out of my hand.Scotty 2 Hotty13/04/2019

Parked on the edge of the Lamplugh road and took the clear path that goes down towards Ennerdale. At the point where it turns down we turned up a well trodden path though not signed or on the map. the path took us straight up to the top of Burnbank fell then onto Blake Fell and finally Gavel. from here we dropped down another clear path though not on the map towards Crummock and gradually walked round to meet the original path that we had left. Lovely sunny day though a good breeze on top. Walked with Chris.karentracey08/07/2018

Mellbreak the Return. After a memorable day in the Loweswater hills three years ago I returned with Mark hoping for a better day. Walking from Maggies Wood car park, the steep climb up to Mellbreak was in sunshine retracing our steps and dropping down to cross Mosedale Beck to tackle Hen Comb head on. As we approached the summit the rain started and as we climbed Gavel Fell it was getting quite breezy. Glad to stop for lunch in the shelter on Blake Fell before we carried on to the still uninspiring 'top' of Burnbanks Fell. Weather improved on the descent to Holme Wood and the car and a welcome pint in front of the log fire at the Kirkstile InnPhilip A03/05/2018
