For those of you who have an early version of the Lakes book, here’s an extra location added later on.
Wasdale Head is covered in ancient field patterns and there are many fells from which you can view them, but the walk up Kirk Fell gets you relatively high relatively quick. Although it’s steep you don’t need to go all the way to the top — even as far as the large rock you can see from the bottom will give you a great view of the patterns and tiny St Olaf’s Church nestled in the trees. There’s also a fabulous view looking down the valley towards the head of Wastwater. It’s a good location year-round, but avoid early morning and late evening as the surrounding hills cast the fields in shadow.
