Roadside parking, near Wythop Church

This litterally is parking alongside the road, with more of the car being on than off the road. There are some wider spaces in front of the church, but for instant access to the fellside below Sale Fell this is the beat spot.

Obviously parking is free along here.

Just a short walk today I'm afraid. I seem to have brought a sore foot back with me from our holidays. It isn't too bad while I'm actually walking, it's afterwards that it gets painful. Anyway: it's slowly getting better but I decided to give yesterday a miss and only do a short easy walk today.

Looking across the valley to Embleton.

"which is which"
"Eskin is the bottom one and the other is Burthwaite"

This is the lovely Wythop Valley. A nice quiet spot hidden away between Sale Fell, Ling Fell and Broom Fell.

It looks like the National Federation Against Signs are holding their annual meeting around here somewhere.

Sale Fell and Skiddaw seen from the Corpse Road around the side of Ling Fell.

A close up of Embleton. The ever bury A66 can be seen running across the middle of the picture.

Ling Fell summit in front of Graystones.
The fells behind the line of tree are the Grisedale Pike / Hopegill Head fells.

and another picture from Ling Fell. This time showing Sale Fell on the left and the Skiddaw fells behind.

Wythop Moss and Broom Fell.

Bracken, just about at the height of its nuisance factor.


And the cloud of the day award goes to, , , ,

Looking over Wythop Mill to Binsey.

Houses at Wythop Mill. I think this used to be the actual mill.

On the other side of the bridge is this nice cottage.
I'm parked along the road up to the right and I'd be driving past the cottage to get back down to the main road on the way home.
