                                        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 “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 xcars 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 five minutes the path leads to a gate which gives access to the open fell side

 

 

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

At the gate way stay to the left of the boundary wall and follow the track upwards towards Oxford Crag

It’s the middle of May and Helvellyn is still snow capped !!

 

 

The pathway now starts to get squeezed a little between the crags and the boundary wall as it starts to swing round for the summit approach
