Blake Rigg over Blea Tarn.

 

Side Pike with the Langdale Pikes looming large in the background.

 

Lingmoor - so named because of the extensive ranks of heather that cover the upper flanks.

 

The summit of Lingmoor Fell is quickly reached via the short direct ascent from the Blea Tarn road opposite Bleatarn House.

 

Looking southwards over the summit cairn towards Wetherlam.

 

High amongst the heather, north and just below the summit, lies Lingmoor Tarn.

 

The Langdale Pikes dominate the views to the north.

 

Harrison Stickle and Pavey Ark.

 

More ling on Lingmoor.

 

Of all the places to view the Langdale Pikes Lingmoor Fell must rank amongst the best……….

 

……………………………..the view up Oxendale aint bad either.

 

Looking down on Side Pike.

 

Another view of Blea Tarn and Wetherlam.

 

The path leading north from Blea Tarn.

 

Across the water of Blea Tarn  the attention is always drawn to Side Pike and the backing Langdale Pikes.
