Circuit of Crummock Water including Mellbreak and Rannerdale Knotts

Tuesday 30th March 2021

As lockdown eases, a chance to travel a bit further for some more enjoyable exercise. After pounding the tarmac streets of Teesside throughout the winter I was desperate for a good day out amongst the fells. I had intended to walk yesterday, but the weather looked so bad I pushed it back a day – well worth it too !

Shame I had missed all that lovely snow on the mountains over the past few months, but we all had to do our bit and make sacrifices.

I hadn’t visited Mellbreak for a while, so I decided to do a circuit of Crummock Water and include it en-route. I also sneaked in Rannerdale Knotts on the way back too. The weather was absolutely glorious after the first couple of hours of cloud – it was like a hot summers day. A real treat for my first visit to the Lakes in 2021 (and its nearly April !!)
