DATE : 10th October 2004









View of Binsey from the south


The Uldale Fells from start of the ascent of Binsey


And further to the south is the mighty Skiddaw


Sandale Hill with it's transmitting mast with Aughertree Fell and Uldale Village to the right


The summit cairn of Binsey's West Crag with Criffel visible across the Solway Forth


Bassenthwaite Lake with the North Western Fells providing the backdrop


Rays of sunshine light up Skiddaw's Ullock Pike


Some more rays illuminate the waters of Bassenthwaite Lake


West Crag with St John's Hill in the background


Now it's Lords Seat's turn for some sunshine


Close up of Catbells & Maiden Moor


Skiddaw now free of cloud from the return route along Binsey's lower slopes


In the distance is Whitewater Dash waterfall with Little Calva to the left & Bakestall to the right


On Aughertree Fell now looking towards the Uldale Fells again


And the view towards Skiddaw


Binsey with Uldale village sitting below from Green How , Aughertree Fells highest mound


Close up of Trusmadoor seperating Meal Fell & Great Cockup with the higher Knott behind


One of the many disused quarries to be found in the area
