An easy walk from Bridgend in Patterdale, across fields, follow the pipeline path and up to Place Fell. Great views along Ullswater and across Martindale.

Not the steepest and not the highest, but definitely worth the trip for its wonderful views of Ullswater both from summit and whilst walking on the lower path back to Patterdale.

Hiked this fell on a lovely clear day. Chilly at the top and a bit of snow but an exhilarating ascent and fantastic views at the top.

We followed a route published in the Pathfinder guide, "More Lake District Walks". The route to the top from Patterdale is hard work but the path is clear and made up. There is a rocky scramble at the top but rewarded by super views of...More
