Hiking Blease Fell & Hare Shaw from Tebay

Having initially gone past on a train when we finished our coast to coast charity adventure, I said to the guys I’m going to do that.

Little did I know I was going to be doing it solo almost 6 months later.

Driving up the M6 from Preston, at the part where you start to lose signal due to the massive rock formations either side, you come to Tebay Services. Well if you get off at the junction before, park up and walk for 2.5 miles, you get to some amazing views across the valley and down the M6.

As someone who literally couldn’t stand the sight of that motorway, this was a refreshing change to see it in such beauty.

If you want to do it yourself, download a GPX compatable app (just search GPX in playstore or apple store) and download the file from here.

Word to the wise, use your eyes and don’t just follow the GPS. It’s not always accurate and you never know what you’re going to miss.

Enjoy.
