View from Great Hill, Selside
View from Great Hill, Selside
View from the great Hill, looking northwards up Coniston Water with the 'Old Man of Coniston' visible on the left. This is a great walk to take in the south of the lakes. You meet virtually no one and after a stiff climb, the views are superb.
A good circular route can be started from the small car park in the woods at Crabs Haw (SD297908). We walked down the road from there to High Nibthwaite and then took the path leading up the side of High Wood. Once at the top, you walk round a farm and then onto open moorland heading towards Top o' Selside from where you can pick up a green lane back down to the car park. Wear decent footwear though, it gets boggy in places, even in the summer.
