Good parking at Orthwaite with a £3 honesty box. Short walk along rd to bridleway then steeply uphill after crossing beck. Better route on return on path towards Calva then down small valley to bridleway.govanah11/07/2021
Started at Orthwaite Farm as per Wainwrights suggestion. Very difficult to park there. Felt very long to walk around the great Cockup. Aggressive cattle blocking paths where Hause Gill crosses with Burntodd Gill. Very soggy marshy land around there so need to stick to trails. It got more interesting as I skirted the bottom of Burnt Todd following Hause Gill upstream. You don't see summit of Knott until you are at 600m and about 1.5 hours into hike. Was beginning to doubt it's existence. Beautiful views at summit. 12km+ hikelifeathighaltitude22/06/2021
13 mile circular walk (Longlands Fell, Louthwaite Fell, Brae Fell, Great Sca, Knott, Great Calva, Little Calva) from Kestrel Lodge campsite, near Bassenthwaite. Sunny with a cool breeze. Very few other walkers around, especially on the lower fells.philip_firth15/06/2021
