Terrain Overview





Arnison Crag is the first walk depicted in Book 1 of Wainwrights Fell walking guides. Easily reached from the main road running through

Patterdale and what I would describe as a filler in to do if the weather is too uncertain for a more longer walk



The walk starts outside the White Lion Inn car park in Patterdale. There is space for several cars at the side of the main road



Follow the path that runs between the car park and some houses



The path winds its way round to Mill Moss



After about 5 minutes of easy walking the path leads to a gate which gives access to the open fell side



Follow the path round through a line of crags to the Glemara Park boundary wall



Arnison Crag from the path



At the gate stay to the left of the boundary wall and follow the track up to Oxford Crag



Oxford Crag



The path skirts round the base of Oxford Crag and levels off



Looking back to Ullswater



Its the middle of May and Helvellyn is still snow capped



The path gets squeezed a little between the crags and the boundary wall as it starts to swing round to the summit approach



Heading towards the summit
