Low Fell

As a member of the Wainwright family unassuming Low Fell may have managed to achieve a certain level of fame, however this isn’t the stampeded turf of Scafell Pike or Helvellyn. Find yourself on its grassy slopes outside peak walking times and you may well be the solitary wanderer.

Approaching the view on Sourfoot Fell

It’s fame comes from the view to the south east – Crummock Water set in the heart of a rugged array of hills. It’s a Lake District classic and one of the finest from any summit in the National Park.

Summer evening on Low Fell

An easy grassy path from Thackthwaite lifts you on to Sourfoot Fell, where the ridge then undulates along to Low Fell with fine views an accompaniment for the duration.

It’s a more than generous reward for minimal effort, though by the time you’ve traversed back along the ridge you may just have worked up enough of a thirst for a pint at the Kirkstile Inn.
