45. Lingmoor Fell, 4th May, 2015
With Sophie. The best day of the May Bank Holiday weekend and Langdale was teeming. From the National Trust Car Park we crossed the road and took the track to Side House. After that a field path links ladder stiles to where the path is met that heads uphill cutting a corner of the road over to Little Langdale. From here a good path contours round Side Pick to follow a fence to the col between the latter hill and Lingmoor Fell itself. Then another good path follows a wall to the top. The fabulous view encompasses, Swirl How, Weatherlam, Pike o’Blisco, Crinkle Crags, Bowfell, The Langdale Pikes, Helvellyn and Fairfield as well as much of Windermere. We came down by following another wall southwest to take the easy to find path that climbs down to the left of a little gorge to Bleatarn House. From there we more or less reversed our upward route before grabbing some coffee and cake at the very busy Chesters at Skelwith Bridge before driving back to Sheffield. This is a lovely short hillwalk.
