Lake District walks - Newlands valley

Taken from near Little Braithwaite. The fells are, from left to right, Catbells, Maiden Moor and Dale Head. Hindscarth is behind the tree on the right. A lovely 15-mile walk is to do the "Newlands Round", i.e., all these fells in either direction, starting and finishing in Braithwaite. The Round is more usually undertaken by parking the car either at the bottom of Catbells or at Little Town (almost exactly in the dead centre of this picture), in which case one walks about 10 miles - missing out however on walking through the valley.

An early summer picture of Catbells from the Newlands Beck path.

Looking across the beck and Uzzicar Farm fields to Causey Pike, behind Barrow. On a clear winter's day.

Looking north from the beck across Newlands towards Skiddaw.

Looking back north, towards Skiddaw, in the early spring.

Just right for tired dogs...
