Longlands fell, Brae Fell, Great Sca Fell, Meal Fell, Great Cockup & Binsey

Saturday 11th June 2016

A peaceful (for the most part) walk in the Uldale Fells. Starting near Over Water, I headed for the small hamlet of Longlands and leaving the country lane I then headed up to Longlands Fell and onto Louthwaite Fell before visiting Brae Fell, Great Sca Fell and Meal Fell. The path descends to the sleepy Trusmadoor, before a climb back up to Great Cockup.

After walking through the tiny village of Orthwaite, I headed across the fields towards Binsey. This proved to be eventful as I was attacked by a Buzzard (twice !) near Over Water Hall - I managed to get a photo of it after the second swoop as it circled deciding whether to go for me again ! He had warned me off, so I did as he wanted - and pressed on to Binsey. Exciting stuff this Fell Walking.
