High Street & Kidsty Pike inc. Ullswater & Haweswater
Head up onto the High Street Roman Road for views down into Haweswater with glimspes of Red Deer below in the valley of Riggindale
Our route leads from the sleepy hamlet of Hartsop steeply up on the The Knott, before heading south to High Street Summit where we will look over to the deep and dark Blea Water. High Street will be our first of three Wainwrights of the day.
Next onto Kidsty Pike (Wainwright no 2), for views down to the Haweswater reservoir and across to the Shap Fells. This is the highest point on the Coast-to-Coast National Walking Route. Next door to this we can bag Rampsgill Head (Wainwright no 3) before returning under the Knott and back to the valley floor.
If time and weather permits, we can extend another kilometre to catch glimpses of Angle Tarn on the descent. This route can be extended down to Haweswater Resovoir or across to Place Fell for speedy hikers.
High street Summit is steeped with history of the Romans chariot racing up on the mountains and goods being transported from Galava Gate Fort in Ambleside to Brocavum Fort near Penrith, high above the danger of ambush in the forested valley floor.
