Midweek Walk The Howgills: Gaisgill and back
On a beautiful day, ten members met at Carlingill Bridge and proceeded up the zigzags on Uldale Head, across Archer Moss (not too boggy) and to Archer Tarn. Then a change of plan, so instead of walking down to Gaisgill the group headed up to the top of Uldale Head. Then down to Blakethwaite Bottom which acts as the watershed between Uldale Back and Carlin Gill, and also as 'Check Point 3' on Mike's Sedbergh Fell Race. Climbing steadily upwards along the lovely path above Black Force, lunch was taken before continuing to the col between Fell Head and Knowles. Then down the green track above Fairmile Beck for a cuppa at Fairmile Bridge. A steady mile or so's walk along the line of the old Roman Road that is Fairmile Road completed a grand day out on the delightful Howgills. Thanks Mike and Adelle.
|Archer Tarn. Unnamed on the OS 25,000 map but is on the side of Archer Hill so seems an appropriate name. Supposedly the only decent area of standing water in the Howgills.|
