    stabiliser just heard from him, you are indeed correct (not that it was in doubt) πŸ™‚

    the photos are getting increasingly off-piste, where’s the cairn?

    dont know the lakes at all so never have any idea how obscure these places are (or indeed whether theres any cairns nearby), but im sure keeping it all on this thread is better than a new one each time doncha think? πŸ˜‰

    He’s been to ‘Chester’s’ Cafe at Skelwith Bridge (here) and then taken a walk along the river towards Elterwater (it’s a cycle path). The memorial stones must be in the quarries around Yew Crags, SW of Elterwater village (here).

    I spent a lot of my childhood weekends playing in that quarry (we had a house in chapel stile).

    Is he getting old/lazy? His walks are getting less adventurous.

    Could be a “walking off a bad head” walk?

    No, that’s jack’s rake in the background on Pavey ark, so maybe somewhere nr slate mines at chapel Stile (again????) or certainly further down the valley nr chapel stile.

    click on satellite view, I think maybe looking across this field from the wall on the right, just on the edge of chapel stile. as well as the slag heap you can also see shadow of at least one telegraph pole.

    otherwise, somewhere in that vicinity

    Work out separately from B.A.Nana but the same answer, I think it’s from the field you can see here

    aye, ive been googling pics and seen a pic almost the same as my mates, so ive sent an email request to them asking which room number it is. if i have no joy ill ask about that top window, itd be nice to give him a number to mess with his head πŸ˜‰
    if i have to ring to ask about that room, what does it overlook? top room looking up at what?

    is that the bunkhouse in front of the window?

    B.A.Nana
    Member

    No bunkhouse is down to the left of the pic on the campsite (probably not even in that pic). That’s maybe more B&B accomm or staff accomm.

    Edit yeah bunkhouse is way out of pic down a hill

    for some context, ill include some of his other pics from same weekend so you can see what area hes been in. dont need to guess these, only the top two thanks πŸ™‚






    theres no saying that room 9 was where he actually stayed, dont know where it is or how many rooms it has.

    That’s the bunkhouse at Sykeside Campsite / Brotherswater Inn πŸ˜€

    This is the Building from the other side (shop, shower block, drying room), your mate’s van would be parked behind

    Had my suspicions I was wrong. Ironically I was scanning some old of my old slides a while back and I’ve got an almost identical photo, couldn’t remember where I took it.
