Sun 5 December - Holme Fell

Holme Fell, Black Crag and Tarn Hows

This walk takes in the modest peaks of Holme Fell (317)and Black Crag (322), which despite being relatively small give great views of their more loftier neighbours and Windermere, Coniston Water and Esthwaite water on a clear day.
The walk will also take us up Holme Fell and down past the dramatic old quarry at Hodge Close, continuing north to Colwith Force waterfall and then turning south to Iron Keld and Tarn Hows via Black Crag and down to Tom Gill through some attractive woodland passing some waterfalls.
