Sheffield Pike in the Lake District has been hailed as a great walk by outdoor news provider Grough.

In a feature on the 2,215 ft peak, it pointed out that fellwalker and author Alfred Wainwright labelled it a mountain that is "not to be climbed in mist".

However, the news provider noted that walkers can enjoy the trek in an afternoon by getting up and down in a few hours, while those who do so in good visibility will see sights varying from old silver mines to the sole ski tow in the national park, on Raise.

Those looking to navigate on Sheffield Pike or any other hill in poor visibility may find that having Ordnance Survey Maps and a Walking GPS helps make finding the way to the summit simple.

Some may wish to navigate their way up all 214 fells listed by Alfred Wainwright in his famous guides to the fells.

Last year, the Wainwright Society celebrated the re-publishing of the seventh and final guide by challenging its members to complete ascents of all 214 fells between them.

Those who took part in the quest included DJ and outdoor writer Stuart Maconie, who climbed the last two he needed to complete his set.
