Jockey Shield - Cumrew Fell - New Water - Jockey Shield

After a couple of weeks without any rain to speak of I decided to have another go at the Cumrew Fell circuit. The whole of the top of the fell is a "No Dogs" area so it is probably best to leave your dog at home if venturing up there! It's nothing to do with protecting wildlife... it's to ensure a good supply of game birds. The top of the fell is just a wide shooters' track built to service the well heeled who enjoy killing for pleasure!

The river was very low and the crossing was simple (not like the first time I tried).
