Dunnerdale Horseshoe

Our first full day was walking the Dunnerdale Horseshoe. There was little likelihood of climbing any of the big tops this week with high winds and low clouds forecast but the benefit of the Lakes is that there is lots of alternatives.

We parked at Broughton Mills at the village hall car park where a voluntary fee was paid.

Route (as best remembered)

The route was north over The Knott, Ravens Crag and near Fox Haw we stopped for a break and watched a family making good progress up Caw.




Towards The Knott


Turning south west our route was over the Dunnerdale Fells taking in Stickle Pike and Great Stickle before heading back to Broughton Mills.
