Brock Crags & Angletarn Pikes
3D outline of route
Early Friday morning and parked up at Bridgend opposite Deepdale.
First one here for once.
Just before the bridge there is a footpath sign and a left turn to take.
After wandering across the meadowland surrounded by plenty of grazing sheep and lambs, I reached Goldrill Beck and headed over it to pick up the main Patterdale to Hartsop path.
A sharp right as I turned in the direction of Hartsop.
Views of Brothers Water and the surrounding fells (from left to right): Hartsop Dodd, Middle Dodd, High Hartsop Dodd and Hartsop above How.
At the village of Hartsop, I joined the Hayeswater Gill path. There are two paths here, one either side of the Gill. Today I chose the left hand side one, for no other reason than I usually go to the right. But further on up you have to cross over anyway.
It wasn't me !
I leave the main path as it veers to the right towards The Knott and High Street and I head in the direction of Rest Dodd.
As I pick up the main C2C path, I look back to see The Knott in the distance.
Looking back towards Hayeswater with Gray Crag behind. Last time I was at the top of Gray Crag (a few months ago) I was in a whiteout. Conditions are much gentler today.
Following the Coast to Coast path for a while albeit the majority of folk will be walking in the opposite direction. I did bump into a few 'coasters' today too.
At Satura Crag looking over to Rest Dodd.
Another view of Hayeswater.
Enjoying the views of Brothers Water at the summit of Brock Crags.
A pleasant location for my lunch stop.
I think this is the most beautiful tarn in the Lake District.
Summit of Angletarn Pikes.
Arriving at Boredale Hause with Place Fell prominent in the background.
Patterdale down below and Ullswater coming into view.
Descending back down from Boredale Hause as a really enjoyable walk ,surrounded by lovely lakeland scenery, comes to an end.
