Terrain Overview

 

 

Overview

 

The Indian Summer on our week away in Lakeland continues, given the heat we decided on a smaller climb, that of Binsey which has

the distinction of being the most Northerly of all the Wainwright Fells

 

 

The back end of September in The Lake District … honestly !!

 

 

Just of the main road from Keswick to Carlisle at Beweldeth – a lay by provides ample car parking

 

 

From the road a view of Binsey

 

 

Through the gate and follow the farm track

Looking across to Skiddaw from the Farm track

 

 

Through the gate at the end of the track and follow the path that leads on to the open fell side

 

 

Heading towards the West Crag

 

 

Through the gate at the intake wall

 

 

Heed well the warning if you are walking with a dog

 

 

The path swings round to the left to take advantage of the easier slope

 

 

A busy Bee !!

 

 

The path swings right to pass the front face of the West Crag
