Starting Point Information Centre -
Roadside, Cold Fell (Blakeley Moss)
Stretching six miles between Calder Bridge and Ennerdale Bridge, Cold Fell acts as a convenient shortcut across the western most section of the Lake District. There are lots of possible parking places across the Ennerdale half of the route; each one offering its own access onto the fantastically remote fells across this edge of the Lakes.

Just a few picture from a lovely sunny evening walk across Grike and Crag Fell.

Walking around the side of Blakeley Rise with Grike ahead of us.

Grike summit is reached and we look across to Blake Fell, Gavel Fell and Great Borne.

From t'other side of the summit shelter Pillar can be seen almost as a silhouette under those dark clouds.

WOW, what a view, Ennerdale and the Great Borne to Haystacks ridge.

It was far too nice to turn around and head straight back so 15 minutes were spent chatting away and admiring the view. In this direction you see Knock Murton, Blake Fell, Gavel Fell and Herdus.

A close up of Bowness Knott and Great Borne with some dark looking Grasmoor fells behind.

Not many pictures tonight I'm afraid. Despite the clear condition I just didn't seem to take many.
