CHA. Chipping

CHA. Walk and Christmas Party.
December 14th.
 
CHIPPING
 
We started the walk from Chipping and followed country lanes and field paths to the farm at Fell Foot.
From here we began our steady climb the summit of Parlick at 433m. At times it was heavy going with boggy conditions underfoot.
We followed the fence to the plateau of Fair Snape Fell where we paused by the trig point. This is a good viewpoint from where it is possible to see the coast and the Lakeland Fells .But not today as we were now in the mist.
We headed for the true summit of the fell at 520m before climbing the stile and following the fence. The area is a mass of peat hags and today they were full of snow. We had to be careful but had lots of fun.
Our return was along a clear path which led us back to Chipping.
 
Later we went for our Christmas meal at The Red Pump Inn at Bashall Eaves.
 
An excellent meal to round off a fantastic day out.

About crosbyman66

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
