Roadside, Brownrigg Farm

Generally used as the starting point for an ascent of Great Mell Fell, this is merely the end of a farm lonning which is wide enough the accommodate three or four cars. This is somewhere I've never failed to get parked.


Route Map

Looking back down the track at the bottom of Great Mell Fell.

Little Mell Fell seen a little way after we left the track and started to walk up the fell itself.

And looking in the same direction.

The view across to Gowbarrow.

As we were approaching the trees a band of cloud came in across the fell, causing the trees ahead of us to look even more misshapen and twisted than they normally do on this fell.


Notice the angle of the trees; caused by the wind.

Great Mell Fell summit, briefly free from cloud.

And back into the cloud for our return to the car.
