Lake District walks - High Newlands

Here are some views of the upper Newlands Valley and Hindscarth, mostly taken in summer 2000 from just above Little Town. The first one includes Robinson, with High Snab farm visible on the right below High Snab ridge. The track takes you past Little Town, down on the right, up to the top of Newlands on the left.

Further down the track Dale Head comes into view. You can also see Low Snab Farm at the foot of Hindscarth and, above it, the famous Goldscope mine where German miners came in the 16th century to mine copper - the first of many mines in the northern Lakes.

Further still along the track....

If you carry straight up this path, you can cut up the left hand side of Dale Head to the Tarn, and then, right, onto Dale Head or, left, onto Maiden Moor and back again.

These pictures were taken from just below Little Town on a very hot day in March 2003, where the heat seemed to have caused some kind of inversion with this delightful misty effect.
