Lake District walk – Threlkeld and Hausewell Brow

North-west out of Threlkeld and north-east below the slopes of Blencathra to Scales Farm. South-east along minor roads and paths to Highgateclose, then generally south via Lobbs across grassland to meet the Old Coach Road near Wolfcrag Moss. North-west on the Hausewell Brow track to the quarries below Threlkeld Knotts, before finally heading north back to the starting point. An 11-mile walk in the Lake District.

Time for lunch at Lobbs.

A hot day and the 1½ mile crossing from Lobbs to the Old Coach Road was hard going.
