Parking spaces, Martindale new church

There are plenty of parking spaces next to Martindale's new church and what a fantastic area this is. Found on what I'd call the back side of Ullswater this is as close as you're going to get to unspoilt.

The sheer quantity of walks that can be done from here would rival any other area in the Lake District, it may take a little more imagination and inventiveness than some places, but there really is something to suit everyone.

Parking is free.

Boredale with Place Fell on the right.
Today we had a short walk up Hallin Fell. Jennifer was getting back onto the fells after a foot operation in January and I twisted my ankle yesterday so a more difficult walk would have been no good for us.

Just below Hallin Fell summit looking towards the Eastern Fells.

Hallin Fell summit "obelisk" with Ullswater behind.
The summit is only 1271ft, but even at this height it was good to get some shelter from the icy wind.

Looking back up Hallin Fell.
The summit is just to the right of this picture.
