Nethermost Cove

Coves, Combes and Holes of the Lake District - an out of the ordinary walking project starting in 2017

To save any missunderstandings:
1) There is absolutely no timescale for this project
2) I will not be doing any daft walks just to cram them in
3) Hopefully these walks will only be done in good weather
4) Other, none project walks will done in between these ones

How I planned the project:
1) I made a list of coves, comb(e)s and holes
2) I grouped them into possible walks
3) I ended up with a list of walks taking me to 1 or more of them

What gave me the idea in the first place:
It was while sitting above Upper Kentmere having a bite to eat and looking across to Hall Cove in October 2016. I began to thing how long it was since I'd walked through there and then I started to think of as many combs as I could. After coming up with a short(ish) list I thought it would be a nice idea to make a more comprehensive list and then devise the walks which would take me into them.

Why did I choose those ones.
I'm not sure what you want me to say. I simply looked through the map and made a list of every one I could find. It was that easy.

Keeping a track of things:
Below you'll find a simple counter showing the number of walk I've done, the number of places I've visited and the distance I've walked as the project progresses.
