Another Newlands Adventure

Buy Me a Coffee at

It's September 2020 and after a year full of lockdowns, cancelled holidays and just general chaos, I rather unexpectedly found myself having a week of carefree fell-walking in the Lake District.

Day 1 saw me head up two Central Fells with "High" in their name. For my second day it was off to the North Western Fells and three overlooking the Newlands Pass.

Walked on 20 September 2020.

Route: Newlands Church → Robinson → Newlands Hause → Knott Rigg → Ard Crags → Newlands Church

The fell overlooking the Newlands Valley that has absolutely nothing to do with Dustin Hoffman and Anne Bancroft.

With greenery everywhere, and a stonking view of the Newlands Valley, what is there not to love about Knott Rigg?

Knott Rigg’s fractionally larger, more heathery neighbour.
