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
