“Graceful Lady – Wetherlam”

Graceful is not always used describing the larger fells to the south and west of the Lake District but a walk up Great Carrs and back down Wetherlam certainly fits the phrase. Wet Side Edge and Wetherlam Edge form a beautiful horseshoe which drew my eye when passing through Little Langdale a few weeks ago.

I came back and walked up Great Carrs first – the ascent is more gradual and easier on the legs as it curves round south to approach the summit.

The summit is nothing special, with the exception of the remains of a Halifax (WW2 Bomber), which came down at night in October 1944 killing 8 (7 Canadians).

Beware, as there are some spectacular cliffs a few yards to the west.

Wetherlam, which is reached by a steep descent from Swirl How, is one of my favourite Lakeland mountains.

The land is potholed with old mining shafts and there is great views over the full Coniston round; the descent off Wetherlam Edge caps a great, but not overly strenuous, day in the fells.

I hope you like my photographs and paintings.
