Found on the quieter western edge of the Lake District, there never seems to be problem getting parked here. Perhaps this is a result of the limited number of fells that can be reached from here. Having said that, the walks that can be done from here are fantastic.

Parking is free.


Route Map

Looking along the track that runs between the Croasdale road and the forest above Cogra Moss.

Low Pen and High Pen.
The path follows the fence on the right of the picture almost to the summit of Blake Fell.

Low Pen and Knock Murton.

Looking towards the Western and North Western fells from the point where the path to Gavel Fell joins the Blake Fell route.

This stone is found at the same place as the previous picture was taken.
The map shows this spot to be along one of the district boundary's so I'm assuming was one of the "boundary stones" placed at intervals along the boundary line. The stone looks as though it was once used as a gate post. There would have been an identical stone opposite this one and lengths of wood would be pushed into the stone and then allowed to drop down into the slot to make a gate. The top half of the stone is laying on the ground.
