After a great day yesterday in the North Western Fells, I wanted to visit Sale Fell and Ling Fell.
It was another lovely day and both these fells make for a nice ‘walk’. Both situated close to roads which allow for an easy ascent. They are the sort of place you’d take you mum to for a bumble. However they give great views back to Skiddaw.
First up was Sale Fell, a nice spot, so nice I didn’t want to leave. Lots of short grass, no mud, few rocks and great views. It would be a nice place for a bivvy out.
￼I popped back to the car to drive around for the ascent of Ling Fell via the Copse Road. Another nice spot.
Not content with these two, I headed home but decided to check the map for another Wainwright with easy access. I found one – High Rigg.
High Rigg is the lump of rock between the A591 from Keswick to Ambleside and the B5322 St John’s in the Vale. Parking by the small church a short walk leads to the summit giving views all around to Blencathra, Skiddaw, Helvellyn and beyond.
