Another of my 2009 walks in the English Lake District..a quick stroll up to High Street above Haweswater and back down Nan Bield Pass before rushing back to Penrith to pick up Mrs VR.
High Street is named after the old Roman road that crosses near its summit.
This is a view to the ridge of Rough Crag by which I had climbed up to High Street. Then I had descended to the next fell of Mardale ill Bell..there being 2 ill Bells close to each other,the other in the next valley of Kentmere.
In the distance is the Eden Valley and the moors of the North Pennines that make up part of the “backbone” of England seperating West from East.
Haweswater is a reservoir that supplies Manchester to the south.
