The views from the top of Walla Crag, at 379 metres (1243 feet), are simply stunning. And at this height, it’s another Wainwright Fell ticked off the list. Our 5 year old had no problems at all summiting this one, although it is steep in places. But it’s easy to navigate and not too far at 1.75 miles in total.
The Bowder Stone is a popular, and interesting feature near Grange, in the beautiful Borrowdale valley. We decided to combine a visit to this giant, fun rock with a 2.5 mile circular walk up King’s How – Grange Fell, which is a Wainwright, at 392 metres or 1286 feet.
Sale Fell, at the north end of Bassenthwaite in the Lake District is a great fell for little legs! And it’s a Wainwright, with the peak at 359 metres (1177 feet). We did a 2 mile circular walk (option to extend to 3 miles), on mostly wide open grassy paths. It offers spectacular views of the northern fells, Bassenthwaite Lake and Derwentwater.
Helm Crag, or the lion and lamb, as it’s known locally, is a fantastic family walk near Grasmere. It is classed as a Wainwright Fell, which means it’s over 1000 feet. It’s actually 1328 feet to be exact!
Loughrigg Fell is a great little family Wainwright to climb. Easy to navigate from White Moss or the A591 layby.
