Haweswater Dam from Hugh's Laithes Pike summit

  • Description

    "Hugh's Laithes Pike is a prominent point on the Naddle Horseshoe, an 8-mile walk described in Wainwright's "Outlying Fells" book. As can be seen here, it is an excellent viewpoint. Unfortunately a high deer fence has been erected, with the cairn about 10 metres on the wrong side of it. For landowners in the National Park to do this without providing an access gate is, to put it mildly, inconsiderate. So I was not altogether surprised to find, not far away, that a neat gap had been made in the fence just large enough for a walker to step through!" Photo by David Purchase, 2012.
