|Start Point:||Lindale Hill||Grid Reference:||SD 416 806|
|Distance:||7.25 miles||Ascent:||900 feet|
|Weather:||Dry, cloudy with occasional patches of sunshine and a cool brisk wind.|
|Comments:||Thirteen people set off from Lindale uphill to join a field footpath which led ultimately to Eggerslack woods. Roughly maintaining our height we emerged after a mile and a half at Eden Mount going on to Spring Bank where we could join the open fell. A further mile took us to the summit hospice where we had lunch. The return was made through Hampsfield Allotments, which is undergoing a makeover to convert it to a nature reserve, and field footpaths. En route we encountered a bull, who seemed content enough amongst his cows, and a ''squeezer'' stile which would have caused problems for a catwalk model! We briefly joined the road to Cartmell before picking up a bridleway which took us back to Lindale.|

Path on side of a hill with quite an overhang, was it cut out of the rock?
