Aughertree Fell is a windswept open grassy fell miles north of Skiddaw and just near Uldale. This is probably one of the easiest fells to reach the summit of as its only 21m above the road but nothing substantial marks the top so can be awkward to find the exact summit.

Skiddaw way to the south.

The flat grassy top of Aughertree Fell.

The stone marks the summit. From here I descended down through the anicent settlements to the footpath that leads round to the quarries.

My footpath took me along the bottom of the small valley past the old quarries...

With old ruins like this one about. Lime Kiln maybe?

And other ruins like this one.
