Lake District footpath charity Fix the Fells has reported via its autumn email on a summer of progress repairing several paths, including two that may be used by anyone climbing England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike.

One project involved repairing a path in Mickelden, a valley that splits from Great Langdale and offers a climb up and past Angle Tarn towards Esk Pike and ultimately the highest point in England via Broad Crag.

It has seen the path being re-pitched and a new drain put in to stop flooding, something those walking on it in their hiking boots may appreciate.

Scafell Pike is connected to its neighbour and England's second highest mountain Sca Fell by a narrow ridge called Mickeldore and work has been carried out on repairing a path up to this ridge as well.

Those who have climbed Scafell Pike and wish to cross over to Sca Fell via Mickledore can then do so via the rock climb up Broad Stand, drop to the north side and take the Lords' Rake scramble, or to the south and head up via the Foxes Tarn route.
