Transcript of Blencathra Panarama

This is the view (actually only 270 degrees of it as my software ran out of memory) of the hills surrounding Blencathra (also known as Saddleback) taken in the sunshine of 4th March 2010 from Hallsfell Top, the highest point on Blencathra.
Feel free to zoom or pan to explore the view or to step through the sequence (use right arrow) for a guided tour. Looking north.
In the foreground, with the footprints on, is Hallsfell Top, from which the photograph was taken.
The rounded hill of smooth snow is the northern peak of Blencathra, Atkinsons Pike.
Just behind its right flank is Bowscale Fell.
Directly behind Bowscale Fell is Carrock Fell.
Carlisle is somewhere beyond in this direction. Looking north-east.
Hidden from view beyond the footprints is Sharp Edge and Scales Tarn.
Beyond the valley are Bannerdale Crags with snow along the ridge (they don't look craggy from this side as they face north.)
Bannerdale is behind then 'The Tongue' then the northern arm of Bowscale Fell.
Greystoke Forest can be seen on the plain behind.
In the far distance it is just possible to discern, or imagine, the snow topped hills around Liddesdale in southern Scotland. The ridge behind the south-east end of Bannerdale Crags is Souther Fell. This is a popular route down to the A66 at Scales.
The path follows the ridge over Scales Fell.
In the valley the A66 can be seen heading towards Penrith. Across the valley lie 2 rounded hills with a dusting of snow
on the north (left) sides.
These are Great Mell Fell and
the marginally smaller Little Mell Fell.
Further away on the other side of Ullswater and swinging southwards (to the right) and snow-covered is Martindale Common Behind the immediate foreground of Hartsfell Top lies Threlkeld Common on the other side of the valley, free from snow. The Old Coach Road can just be discerned in places, running roughly along the snow-line, above which is Matterdale Common. Rising behind Matterdale Common but just in front of the distant ridge carrying the Roman road known as 'High Street', are the snow-covered craggy peaks of Martindale Common of which Place Fell is the highest.
