WALK NOTES

Longlands Bridge - Longlands Beck - Trusmadoor - Great Cockup - Meal Fell - Great Sca Fell - Little Sca Fell - Brae Fell - Charleton Gill - Longlands Fell - Longlands Bridge

I drove from Binsey (my first walk of the day) to Longlands Bridge to walk the fells at the "Back 'o' Skidda". I followed the valley from Longlands Bridge to Trusmadoor and then up to the summit of Great Cockup. The scenery around here was lovely - and was an area I had not visited before. The clouds were very slowly clearing from the tops. From Great Cockup I returned to Trusmadoor and then climbed to Meal Fell (at 550 metres). Next I climbed once more up grassy slopes to the highest point of my walk - Great Sca Fell (651 metres). The sun was now properly out giving good views across the area. I continued to Little Sca Fell and Brae Fell before descending steeply to Charleton Gill. I then climbed again to Longlands Fell. From here it was a short downhill walk back to Longlands Bridge.
