Finsthwaite Heights - Wainwright's Outlying Fells
Start from Newby Bridge - anti-clockwise
BLOGGER HAS DECiDED THAT ALL MY BLACK TYPING SHOULD BE RED AS PER THE UNDERLINED HEADING ABOVE - WHATEVER I DO I CAN'T MAKE IT SHOW AS BLACK-
Wainwright's chapter named Finsthwaite Heights visits the tower on Summer House Knott then suggests an extended walk to High Dam which is in the general direction of Finsthwaite Heights nearly two kilometres away, but even then his route does not visit Finsthwaite Heights. Having said that it is still a pleasant and varied walk climbing through woods, then descending to open
fields and the pretty village of Finsthwaite, and then a climb up to Low Dam and High Dam.
"Everywhere the surroundings are delight. But this is not fellwalking."
...and, referring to High Dam:
"Linger in the delectable surroundings here (it is a much nicer place than the over-populated Tarn Hows)"
