The Lakes 5 Days - Day 4

Askham Fell, Pooley Bridge

Organising Club: Border Liners

Planner: Andy Lewsley,
Organisers: Anita Laird, Raymond Wren, Christine Goulding, Isabel Berry
Controller: Andy Quickfall (SROC)

Day 4 - Askham Fell, Pooley Bridge

What can competitors expect?
Askham Common is a large open area. Underlying limestone means there is little surface water and lots of sizeable sinkholes, pits and depressions. Where there are marshes, these can be hard going, particularly if very wet. Surface vegetation varies from smooth grass to runnable tussocks and low heather.  There is bracken across the area – see mapping notes. The area is widely used by the public and has many paths.  Find out more about Day 4 here.

Start times can be found here.

Results can be found on the Lakes 5 Days website here.


Tomorrow (Friday 3 August) - Day 5 will head to Dale Park, Graythwaite.
